The Great Lakes Water Authority: A New Era Begins

January 1, 2016 marked the launch of a regional water authority in Southeast Michigan. The City of Detroit, the counties of Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne, and the State of Michigan have officially united to form the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA). The new Authority is yet one more piece of the plan to not only position an emerging Detroit for long term success, but to give suburban water and sewer customers a powerful voice in the management and direction of one of largest water and wastewater utilities in the nation.

The City of Wixom urges its residents to visit the GLWA website at to learn more about our region's water system. Of particular interest are the Authority's press releases and videos (click HERE).
