The Peoples Recommendations submitted to the UN

1. We call on the State of Michigan and the U.S. government to respect the human right to water and sanitation.

 3. We call on the city to abandon its plan for further cut-offs.


4. We call on the federal and state governments to work with the city to ensure a sustainable public financing plan and rate structure that would prevent a transfer of the utility’s financial burden onto residents who are currently paying exorbitant rates for their water services.


5. We call for fair water rates for the residents of Detroit.


6. We call on the City of Detroit to implement the original water affordability program immediately.
