Program: Water Quality Issues

Historic Arch Creek, a Biscayne Bay tributary, has been identified as one of the dirtiest waterways in Miami-Dade County, according to the Miami Herald, July 18, 2023. Both Miami-Dade County’s Arch Creek Park and the City of North Miami’s Enchanted Forest are on the banks of Arch Creek.

The Arch Creek Trust and Friends of Enchanted Forest, concerned about the risk of harm to wildlife and the parks’ visitors, particularly children, call for immediate community action.

We invite and urge the Community to join us for a listening session and discussion at 2pm on Saturday, October 21st, 2023.

We will learn what action steps we can take now; what we need to do in the near future; in addition to getting information about solutions that are either in process or proposed.


Goals Long Term

  •  Improve Arch Creek’s Water Quality
  • Expand areas of water quality testing; add sediment testing
  • Obtain information about any past and pending enforcement actions and lawsuits
  • Identify watershed restoration items that can be implemented
