Executive Order by Governor Whitmer https://www.michigan.gov/whitmer/0,9309,7-387-90499_90705-523414--,00.html

Per executive order by Governor Whitmer, due to COVID-19, water users serviced by Beecher Water Department, that have been turned off for delinquent are eligible for restoration during the executive order period.

The order gives Beecher Metropolitan District the direction to make a valued effort to restore water to all residents that have been turned off for delinquent and to those who may be occupying a home that has never had water services established
.  We audit the entire district by a physical visit to each vacant property. 

Beecher Metropolitan District may be able to assist with repairs to compromised water services.  Assistance will only be available for repairs on water service leads and meter valves.  The owner will be responsible for all plumbing past the meter valve.  25 percent of the cost related to repairs will be charged to the home owner.

Beecher Metropolitan District employees will not perform work on private property.  Plumbing contractors will be hired to perform the work.  We will not be responsible for the timing of the repairs.   

All past due water bills are not included in this order, and must be paid upon the conclusion of the executive order.

Water bills that are created during the executive order will start being billed from the date of restoration and will be submitted to the state for reimbursement.

Residents that are restored will not be allowed to have leaks that will lead to unusually high bills.  These accounts will be monitored for such activity and turned off if not repaired.

Eligible residents must sign off as having received service as a result of the executive order. 

Water restorations will begin Tuesday March 31, 2020 and will continue until all eligible residents are restored. 


Beecher Metropolitan District will put forth an effort to identify occupied homes that have never had water service activated.  To assist with this effort, residents, or neighbors of known residents not having water service can contact the office without fear of prosecution or penalty. 

Water meters are the property of Beecher Metropolitan District and will be collected at the end of the executive order period.  Property owners are responsible for the water meters and will be charged if damaged or missing.  



Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, rules are subject to change.  Please continue to check our website for updates.
