I have been researching a problem that is a significant
problem to most of Southeast Michigan. The water rate structure as
determined by the Detroit Water and Sewer Department is unfair. The
communities in Western Wayne and Oakland Counties are paying more than
their fair share and, as such, are "carrying the load". These costs
are transferred to you and me by our suburban communities. The solution
is to demand that all water rates in the Detroit Water Region be regulated by the Michigan Public Service Commission, as they were between 1967 and 1995.
Please contact your state representatives and state senators and ask that water rate
fairness be returned to Southeast Michigan. Please take a few minutes to
view the information in the referenced Water Rate Fairness Presentation.
Please share this email with your friends and neighbors.
I am attaching a pdf file on the water rates in your community for your reference.
Thanks and God Bless,
