Water and Sewer
The Utility Division of the Department of Public Services is located at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Their telephone number is (734) 426-4572. For after hours emergencies please call 734-368-5212.
The City's water and sewer department is responsible for overseeing the City's public water and public wastewater systems. The City's public water system supplies an average of 533,000 gallons of water per day to the City residents and businesses. Our wastewater treatment plant treats an average of 365,000 gallons of wastewater per day.
To ensure the health and safety of the City, the Utility Division collects water samples throughout the year and tests them for bacteria and E. Coli. All of these samples have been negative and within limits set by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. The department also collects and tests wastewater samples on a daily basis to insure that we are meeting our permit limits for the discharge of treated wastewater to the Huron River.
