Detroit Water Brigade Our Mission: We are an alliance of compassionate citizens of Detroit and their international allies working to bring emergency relief to families water shutoff while advocating for an income-based Water Affordability Plan in Detroit, Michigan. Rapid Relief We deliver bottled water, water coolers, jugs, rainwater catchment barrels, filters, and other supplies to families. Supplies are donated to our various Water Stations in the city of Detroit by volunteers, allies, friends, families and neighbors. The Detroit Water Brigade is a Local Grassroots community organization that provides emergency water, consultation, advocacy and water restoration assistance to Detroit Residents experiencing a water shutoff or disconnection of service. Since June 2014, The Brigade has delivered emergency water to countless families and seniors who are having a difficulty with their water service. The Brigade also have raised donations up to $30,000 in our first year to help restore water service to residents seeking to enter into a 10% payment plan arrangement with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department.

The Sharewater campaign is aimed at Detroiters being neighborly by sharing water with the affected family that is shutoff on their block or in their neighborhood community.
