Detroit City Council Approves Sale of Oakland-Macomb Interceptor

Earlier today, the Detroit City Council approved the transfer of the Oakland-Macomb Interceptor (OMI) the Oakland-Macomb County Drainage District. The vote was 5-2 in favor of the transfer, which is part of a larger settlement reached last December between DWSD and its suburban customers.

The OMI requires approximately $125 million in emergency repairs, according to DWSD Interim Director, Pamela Turner, although other estimates have put the price tag as high as $160 million.
