DWSD as American Water Company

March 16, 2014

The Detroit Water and Sewage Department ~may~ have to operate
alongside the American Water Company according to Kevin Orr.

The American Water Company already operates in the
State of Michigan , so it is not a newcomer.

Kevin Orr spoke to this fact on Sunday March 16, 2014
as Devin Scillian spoke to him on the FlashPoint show.

About Michigan American Water :
Michigan American Water, a wholly owned subsidiary of
American Water (NYSE: AWK), provides high-quality and
reliable water services to more than 10,000 people.
Founded in 1886, American Water is the largest
publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company.
With headquarters in Voorhees, N.J., the company employs
approximately 6,700 dedicated professionals who provide
drinking water, wastewater and other related services.

Michigan state representative Kurt Heise (R-20th District)
introduced a bill in late January calling for the creation
of a new regional water authority to oversee the DWSD’s assets.
One representative in each of the 126 municipal governments
in the DWSD’s service area would be appointed to the
authority’s board, giving Detroit the same representation
as each of the DWSD’s suburban customers.
The board would also have a 13-member executive committee,
of which Detroit’s representative would be a permanent member.
Detroit would maintain ownership of its water and
wastewater treatment facilities and infrastructure.
