Doctors, enviros want water shutoff moratorium extended after COVID-19 pandemic via @MichiganAdvance

On Saturday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced an executive order directing public water utilities to immediately restore water service for every Michigander whose water has been shut off due to non-payment.

The order is effective for the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak, although some social justice groups and medical professionals argue that it should continue for longer. A grant program will also be implemented to reimburse high-risk areas for reconnecting their homes to water supplies, as the directive does not absolve anyone from paying past-due bills.
