Great Lakes Water Authority

Detroit, Michigan, United States

Raftelis was engaged by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) to undertake a review of the utility’s wholesale sewer charge methodology. As part of this process we worked closely with GLWA Staff as well as the Member Partners to review the existing charge methodology and propose updates to the methodology to meet the objectives of the Member Partner communities to simplify the methodology while ensuring it remained fair and equitable. Through the process we interacted with over a dozen of the Member Partners (including staff and consultants working for OMID and MID, which provide service to the City) and lead discussions in multiple workshops with the Member Partners and GLWA Staff.
