Detroit to resume water shutoffs May 1st
Detroit will start shutting off residents' water again on May 1.
Last summer, the city drew international criticism when it shut off water to thousands of households behind on their bills.
That pushed the city to get some 29,000 people onto payment plans so they could avoid shutoffs. But a lot of them are falling behind again.
Starting this week, the city says it's been leaving notices on people's doors warning their water could be shut off. There is more financial help available.
