Detroiters who need their water turned on can sign up for DWSD’s Water Restart Plan. If you sign up before April 9, you don’t have to put any money down. The State of Michigan will cover it for you! Just call 313-386-9727 to begin the restart. Since the Water Restart Plan was announced on March 9, more than 1,400 Detroit households have taken advantage of it.
During the scheduled turn-on appointment, please make sure someone who is 18 years old or older is home and there is a clear, safe path to the meter. For your safety, an inspection must be done before the water service is turned on. DWSD cannot turn on service without access to the water meter inside your home.
