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 storm water 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 property owners and developers, as funding allows. More information will be available in Spring 2017.
