Welcome to DWSD Customer Outreach Portal

The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) has been collaborating with its wholesale customers on a variety of issues through an outreach process since 1997. The effort encompasses a Water Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), a Wastewater Steering Committee and their related work groups that include staff from DWSD, wholesale water and wastewater customers, SEMCOG and MDEQ. This outreach portal is a resource for these groups and an information source for customers throughout DWSD's service area.
