For some people in Detroit, this has been a long summer: camping in other people's houses, unable to cook, bathe, and flush the toilet. Since March, the city has been cutting of water services to thousands of homes that are behind in payments.
This week, Detroit's bankruptcy judge, Steven Rhodes, is scheduled to decide whether to stop the water cutoffs. Community groups, represented by lawyer Alice Jennings, have been in mediation with the representatives of the City of Detroit since September 8th to come to an agreement on the cutoffs.
