Detroit Off To Slow Start Restoring Water To Homes As Coronaviris Hits
“Detroit’s response is far too slow for water activists such as Sylvia Orduño of the Michigan Welfare Rights Coalition, a group that along with other social agencies petitioned Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to declare the shutoffs a public health emergency.

“This is a crisis. We can’t wait weeks for water to be restored,” Orduño told Bridge.

“They don’t have the capacity to deal with this. The pace is too slow for an emergency situation and there are many households still in a vulnerable state.”


The People’s Water Board Coalition advocates for the human rights to water and sanitation and equitable access and affordability for impacted communities.
