The City of Miami and Miami-Dade County's Department of Environmental Resource Management (DERM) are currently performing an area wide sampling as a result of precautionary concerns. 

An early sample identified contaminated soil at Curtis Park located at 1901 NW 24 Street, Miami, FL.

The park is being closed until further sampling can be performed and necessary actions are identified. 

The City is working closely with DERM and the State Department of Health to perform further testing while plans are developed to permanently remedy the contamination issue.
