What the heck is going on?  Is it time to switch to private wells?  Not necessarily.

As you know, Miami Springs Water and Sewer was switched to Miami-Dade Water and Sewer years ago.  As part of the switch, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer put Miami Springs residents on automated meters.

According to WSVN Channel 7, Miami Springs is part of a pilot program.

According to the WSVN report, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer was aware of the issue and claims that these were isolated incidents.

Of course, it’s obviously wrong when a bill goes from $49 to over $60,0000.  But how do residents trust the water bill if say it went from $100 to $150?  Should you pay it or dispute the bill?

In Miami Springs, we don’t see residents complaining about their FPL bills, but I here lots of complaints about the water bills.  Clearly, Miami-Dade Water and Sewer is having problems in Miami Springs when resident bills are reaching up to $60,000.  Call Miami-Dade Water and Sewer and have them review your bill if you see any sudden and unexpected increases at 305.665.7477. They are open Monday – Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
