The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has been disconnecting water 
services all spring and summer from households who have not paid bills 
for two months, and has sped up the process since early June. Now the 
number of disconnections is rising to around 3,000 customers per week. 
As a result, some 27,000 households have had their water services 
disconnected so far this year. Many activists have stated that Detroit's 
water system is being prepared for privatization by the 1 percent.
