This is because the city, as well as its residents, has historically used more water than other communities in the state, mostly for landscaping.

Contaminant Cleanup

In the late 1990s, a coking facility in Detroit closed, and the site was subjected to strict cleanup requirements as part of new government regulations. As part of the overall site cleanup, the facility was required to capture groundwater contaminated with creosote oil, aromatic hydrocarbons, ammonia and iron, and prevent it from migrating off site and contaminating surrounding areas. The final destination for the groundwater was a municipal wastewater treatment plant.
