Thousands of families in Detroit, mostly black, have had their water cut off because they can’t afford to pay water rates that are nearly double the average in the rest of the country. In March, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department announced that it would shut off water service for 1,500 to 3,000 customers every week if their water bills were not paid.
