Detroit Water and Sewerage Department gets director
DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department is getting a new director.
The city of Detroit announced Monday that Sue McCormick has been approved for the post by the Board of Water Commissioners. She's most recently served as Public Services Administrator for Ann Arbor and previously worked for the Lansing Board of Water and Light.
The job has been vacant since mid-2010. McCormick will start work Jan. 1.
McCormick's appointment by Mayor Dave Bing followed a Nov. 4 ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Sean Cox, who is ensuring the department's compliance with Clean Water Act regulations. The ruling reorganized the department and gave the director's position expanded power.
The department supplies water to about 4 million people southeast Michigan.
