DWSD Board of Water Commissioners Approves Proposed Settlement

On January 28, 2009, the DWSD Board of Water Commissioners voted unanimously to approve a landmark settlement (reported here) with its suburban customers. The agreement must also be ratified by Detroit City Council, where questions about the sale of the Oakland-Macomb Interceptor (OMI) are likely to be raised. Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties also must ratify the agreement. Attorneys representing these counties reportedly told the Court at a hearing in December that they would recommend the terms of the settlement to their respective clients.
