Macomb Water Authority ?

October 4, 2015

Does it truly make sense for Macomb County to go entirely solo , as a unique entity, for a tap water system ?

If there is bargaining power, as a mass unit, with dozens of communities with a unified front, does it not make sense to be  REGIONAL ?  A cumulative effect of Oakland and Macomb Counties, together ?

Should the Madison Heights residents on one side of Dequindre Road – pay a different fee – than the Sterling Heights residents – for the EXACT same tap water ??

Is Macomb County looking north to the KWA drinking water supply ?

I find it ludicrous that Anthony Marrocco wants Macomb to go solo. I see it as a power grab , from the Drain Commissioner.

Think long and hard about the idiocy of using Dequindre Road as the dividing line between pricing tap water in Metro Detroit.
— The Sewage is definitely InterCounty flowing between ALL 3 Counties, and that will not change anytime soon.

If it IS based on elevation, distance, pumping – than OAKLAND County – should pay the most for tap water.
It has multiple sites at 1200ft above sea level – like Pine Knob and Mt. Holly.

How does Warren fit in; since it is close to Detroit, YET the city of Warren has its own Waste Water Treatment Plant. Our water bills are quite reasonable right now.
