The Downriver Utility Wastewater Authority took on the major responsibility of owning the Downriver Sewage Disposal System (DSDS) in late September 2018, when the system was transferred from Wayne County to DUWA. The transfer of the system was a major undertaking, and required an impressive amount of government cooperation. DUWA was recently awarded by APWA’s Downriver Branch for 2019 Project of the Year for Government Cooperation in recognition of its efforts.

The linked document (below) entitled ‘First Year in Review’ presents DUWA’s Year 1 accomplishments, and a look forward towards upcoming challenges.
