EYE ON MIAMI INVESTIGATIVE REPORT:
|City of Hialeah Water Treatment Plant|
Anyway the plant was built by some firm from Spain. Yes, we always use locals don't we? The plant had fatal flaws and wasn't able to run. The raw water for the plant was to come from 14 deep wells. The plant was designed to only supply 10 Million Gallons Daily (for the new development). To give you some idea of how little that is, FPL recently got permission to pump an additional 100 Million Gallons of fresh water daily to keep the toasty-hot cooling canals cooler. With the failed Plant in tow, the Spanish company was bought by another company in South Korea and the South Koreans were tasked with "fixing" the reverse osmosis plant. Did they? The plant has never worked right and the people working there are not water and sewer personnel. In the Flint Michigan spirit of water delivery, the Hialeah plant started delivering water anyway. Could be rotten water for all we know.
The staff at the plant "blended" the mystery Hialeah water with the usual water supplying Miami Lakes. Choke. Why Miami Lakes? Hialeah didn't want to poison its own? Anyway there is more to this story. Much more.
Why aren't County Workers and DERM overseeing this water delivery since the County has $100 million invested in this fiasco? I want to know, and so does Mayor Michael Pizzi who has called Lester Sola at WASA for answers.
By the way, why is the County buying up land way out west in North Dade? I heard they want to put a Wastewater treatment plant out there. Really? Out west near our North West well field? Is that why they are testing that deep deep inject well at Virginia Key. I see a conspiracy of bad planning going on and tainting of water in our future. Injection wells have never been a proven method to dispose of anything.
