Learn About Drainage Charge Credits
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) launched a drainage charge credit program in October 2016. Detroit customers who reduce the peak flow and volume of stormwater runoff on your property – by planting rain gardens or installing pervious pavement, for example – can earn credits to be applied to your bill.
DWSD, in collaboration with local non-profit organizations, will offer implementation assistance to nonresidential property owners and developers, as funding allows. Details about the capital assistance program will be posted in the near future.
