The sale of Flint's water and sewer system would complicate plans by the Karegnondi Water Authority, which has urged Flint to break ties with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. KWA officials recently have been lobbying Flint's Emergency Manager to join the new authority.
No word about who might be interested in buying Flint's water and sewer system or who will foot the bill for the $61.5 million worth of upgrades to Flint's water treatment plant that will be required, according to Rowe Engineering (here and here); KWA would only be furnishing Flint with raw water, not the finished water currently supplied by DWSD.
