DWSD - Crain's Article Highlights Operational Woes at Detroit Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP)

Crain's Detroit Business published a feature article on May 22, 2011 outlining the problems at the City of Detroit's main wastewater treatment facility. Problems include inadequate sludge de-watering, leading to a build-up of the "solids inventory," delayed repairs, cumbersome purchasing practices, and a looming personnel problem as a large percentage of DWSD management personnel approach retirement without an effective succession plan in place. 
DWSD Update outlined these same issues in an article published last September, 2010 shortly after DWSD submitted its Corrective action Plan to the federal court.
