Miami-area Water System Needs $12 Billion in Repairs

September 18, 2012

Some 13,000 miles of deteriorating water and sewer pipes and the treatment plants they link to in Florida's Miami-Dade County need $12 billion or more in repairs and upgrades over the next 15 years.

"It’s going to take time and it’s going to take money," said John Renfrow, the county's water and sewer director, in The Miami Herald. "That’s the bad news. The good news is the shot in the arm the economy will get."
