Detroit shut off water to 11,800 homes this year. Most are still off.

Occupants of more than 5,300 Detroit homes – more than every house and apartment in the suburb of Grosse Pointe Park – went without running water for one week or more during one of the hotter summers on record.

City of Detroit records obtained by Bridge Magazine show that 7,310 of 11,801 homes disconnected for nonpayment since April remained without water as of Aug. 1. Of those homes, a vast majority, 5,354, are believed to be occupied.
