Submit DWSD FOIA Request

Before you submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, ensure it is for the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) and not another City department. If this is not a DWSD request, go here.

If you want to know limited account information -- the last six months of water usage at the property, water status (on/off), the current month's balance, and if there is a delinquent balance owed -- you do not need to submit a FOIA request. Simply call DWSD at 313-267-8000 and the Customer Care Specialist can provide you with this account information.


Use the button below to make your DWSD FOIA request online, or download, complete and email/mail the PDF form listed further below. Within five business days of receiving your submission, DWSD will confirm we have your request.
