Nonresidential Drainage Credits
Learn About Drainage Charge Credits
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) launched a drainage charge credit program in October 2016. Detroit non-residential customers who reduce the peak flow and volume of stormwater runoff on your property – by planting rain gardens or installing pervious pavement, for example – can earn credits to be applied to your bill.
DWSD offers implementation assistance to non-residential property owners and developers, as funding allows. Find out about the Capital Partnership Program here.
