SOCWA and the GLWA
Oakland County has SOCWA, the Southern Oakland County Water Authority
So these communities created a Water Authority to assist them in acting as a larger entity, gaining bargaining power, etc.
Why didn’t any of the cities in Macomb County band together to make an “” authority “” ? It seems odd to now have multiple entities considering themselves “”the water authority” for one side of Dequindre Road and yet none exist on the other side of Dequindre ?
Why not truly just have one Regional Authority for Metro Detroit, or are some people more “” special”” or “” unique “” geographically when it comes to drinking water ?
