GLWA develops unique collaboration with newly created drainage district in Oakland County, City of Detroit to improve water quality by removing wet weather

DETROIT— The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) today announced the first tangible example of regional thinking that has occurred as a result of its recently completed Wastewater Master Plan (WWMP), a 40-year regional roadmap to proactively and adaptively manage the wastewater system and provide a path to affordability through partnerships and collaborations. GLWA, Oakland County and the city of Detroit will work together, across municipal and county boundaries, on three projects that will protect public health by reducing wet weather discharges into regional waterways.

The collaboration came together during GLWA’s WWMP planning process, as discussions were being conducted about the need for a regional focus on reducing combined sewer and sanitary sewer discharges into our waterways during wet weather events.
