The growing COVID-19 public health emergency has worsened the water emergency being experienced by 9500 Detroit households who are disconnected from the city’s water services.
The People’s Water Board has requested that Gov. Whitmer take emergency measures and expedite the reconnection of water services, provide water resources for affected residents, develop a statewide water affordability plan and other actions.
MCHR board member Kim Redigan is also a member of the People’s Water Board (PWB).
In a statement at recent PWB news conference, Redigan said, “We demand that water services be restored immediately to all households, and going into the future, plan to make water affordable for all families.”
