UU Service Committee and UUA Have a Petition to Oppose Detroit Water Shut Offs

UUSC and the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) are petitioning Mayor Michael Duggan, DWSD Director Sue McCormick, and Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr to restore water to most vulnerable households and to stop further shutoffs to vulnerable households. Help us send a strong message to Detroit’s emergency manager and water utility director. Help stop mass shutoffs and protect residents of this great American city. Help defend the human right to water.

While the initial spill was thought to have been cleaned up, it has now been discovered that a second chemical was involved and further testing and clean up will be necessary for that chemical. Initially, trucks carrying water in bulk, some filled with contaminated water, as well as in bottles, came to various sites. There are now only four sites in the county that remain open with bottled water.
