From all of us at Miami Waterkeeper, we are sending positive thoughts your way. We’re hoping for the very best outcome and safety for you, your friends, and your family.  

Hurricane preparations are important for the safety of your loved ones and our environment!

Stormwater runoff is filled with toxic chemicals, sewage, debris and waste. In the event of a hurricane and heavy rain, this contaminated water can result in serious health and environmental risks.

Please do your part to help before a storm hits: 

  1. Pick up yard debris
  2. Safely dispose of chemicals ahead of time - Click HERE for home chemical collection centers in your county
  3. Clean your gutters to eliminate debris
  4. Secure outdoor furniture and other items to prevent them from blowing away
  5. Avoid using fertilizers, chemicals, or watering your lawn before the storm

As your waterkeeper, we will be working to ensure clean and safe water for our community immediately following the storm.

Best to all of you!
