The City of Hialeah Department of Public Works, serving over 230,000 people in a 23 square-mile area, is responsible for providing water and wastewater services within the City of Hialeah and water service to portions of unincorporated Miami-Dade County. Our service area also includes emergency interconnects with the municipalities of Hialeah Gardens and Miami-Dade County.
To ensure reliable high-quality water supply, we purchase most of our water from Miami-Dade County. Additionally, our Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant delivers 7.5 million gallons of water per day to residents in the northwestern area of Hialeah. The southeastern area of Hialeah receives water from the John E. Preston Water Treatment Plant owned by Miami-Dade County.
Our water sources primarily come from the Biscayne Aquifer, a dependable underground geological formation that has been supplying freshwater since the early 1920s. Water from the Biscayne Aquifer is pumped to treatment facilities, including the Hialeah Water Treatment Plant and the John E. Preston Water Treatment Plant. The jointly-owned Hialeah Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant draws water from the Floridan Aquifer, a deeper aquifer with consistently high-quality source water. Hialeah residents consume approximately 24 million gallons of water daily.
Our ongoing Capital Improvement Program ensures compliance with regulatory requirements, maintaining high-quality drinking water and wastewater services. We are committed to water conservation efforts to protect this valuable natural resource and educate future generations about responsible water usage.
The City of Hialeah's wastewater collection system consists of 101 lift station service areas, approximately 338 miles of gravity sewer and laterals, and over 6,900 manholes. These infrastructure assets are vital for the proper management of wastewater in our community.
