Consortium For Water Quality Disbanded By Court

DETROIT (WWJ) A federal judge has dissolved a group of business executives who were advising the court on its oversight of the Detroit water system.

U.S. District Judge Sean Cox in Detroit issued an order Thursday breaking up the Southeast Michigan Consortium for Water Quality.

Judge John Feikens oversaw the Detroit water and sewer department for three decades in a pollution case and formed the consortium in 2003 to provide a regional forum for discussing the system.

Some suburban officials complain about water rates and system management and are seeking a role in running it.
