You’ll find our billboards in the City of Detroit along these highways: I-75, I-96, the Lodge fwy and the Southfield fwy.
In February, the number of COVID-19 infected residents in Detroit was on the rise. The People’s Water Board appealed to Governor Whitmer to disallow water operators from shutting off residential service and to restore service to low-income households that cannot afford bills and rates. Running water is necessary in this pandemic for people to wash their hands properly and stop the spread of the viral disease.
The People’s Water Board Coalition advocates for the human rights to water and sanitation and equitable access and affordability for impacted communities.
