Jun 24 - Detroit Cuts Off Water, Residents Reach Out to UN
 

 
Activists angered by the closing of water accounts for thousands of people behind in their payments have taken their f*ght to the United Nations.

:mspaintwhoa: is this true?

In March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) announced that it would start cutting off the services of homes, schools and businesses that were at least 60 days overdue or more than $150 behind.

It said it wanted to start recouping $118million owed from unpaid bills and that a fierce approach was needed to coax money from delinquent accounts, which make up almost half of the cityís total.

The move, in which as many as 3,000 properties were expected to be cut off each week, has outraged campaigners.
