Operation Clean Water (OCW)

Operation Clean Water (OCW)

A variety of publications are created through the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department Wholesale Customer Outreach effort to keep suburban communities and their customers abreast of issues impacting our water and sewer systems. Operation Clean Water features an in-depth article each quarter on how DWSD and its suburban wholesale customers manage our water and sewer infrastructure to protect public health and the environment. Most of these documents were created by the Public Education Work Group who strongly encourages reuse of these materials in other publications to provide accurate information to the public.
