Kurt Heise, Republican candidate for the open 20
TH
District House seat in Plymouth,Northville, eastern Canton & Wayne, is proposing a plan for the regional control and eventualprivatization of the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department (DWSD).Heise says his plan would lead to cost-savings, efficiencies , greater accountability and transparency forsuburban customers.Heise, the former Director of the Wayne County Department of Environment, has over 16 years of expertise in the policy, legal and legislative history of the Detroit Water & Sewerage Department, andrepresented Wayne County in the 2008 settlement of a 30-year-old DWSD lawsuit before FederalDistrict Judge John Feikens.He is currently a municipal attorney, consultant, and adjunct professor at UM-Dearborn and WayneState University, teaching environmental politics and policy of Southeast Michigan.“If elected November, I will commit to a bi-partisan plan to create a new regional water and sewerauthority for Southeast Michigan,” Heise said, “We can reduce our water and sewer rates by making thesystem smaller, more efficient, and financially secure by putting the customers in charge.”Heise noted the ongoing FBI investigation into DWSD contracting, the resignation of the DWSD Directorand other key staff with no permanent replacements, recent revelations of DWSD’s multi-million-dollarland purchase along the Detroit River, the Synagro sewerage sludge scandal, and recent violationsagainst DWSD from the State of Michigan for illegal sewerage discharges into the Detroit River.“In the summer of 2008, Judge Feikens issued an Opinion expressing his concerns with the institutional,managerial, and financial problems impacting DWSD,” Heise said, “this was a warning to the City, butit’s gotten lost among Detroit’s other challenges. I applaud Mayor Bing for his efforts to turn the Cityaround, but DWSD is a problem that we can take off his desk.”
