Is Miami’s beach water filled with poop? Volunteer testing proves it’s so
I love the ocean.”Stripling is one of 25 volunteers in Miami-Dade County. Records show there has been an average of 25 beach advisories a year in Miami-Dade County since 2017. “Twenty percent of the Thursdays you come to the beach, it could be contaminated with this fecal bacteria," Stripling said. This is a recipe for disaster.”In 2019, the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department reported 108 sewer-line breaks; mishaps during construction projects were to blame for 29 of them. Right now Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department must, by law, disclose when there is a major spillage and issue no swim advisories for bodies of water affected.
