Water Shut Offs...
  • Place you and others’ health at risk

  • Can lead to the Michigan Department of Human Services taking your children and disabled loved ones

  • Can put your home in jeopardy of being condemned, and your family evicted

  • If water is privatized, water costs will double or triple

  • 120,000 Detroit households (approximately 300,000 Detroiters) are in jeopardy of shut-offs
