An owner of several apartment complexes was in piping hot water with the water department.

The head honcho with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department says he was caught skipping out on his water bill for almost five years.

We are talking a lot of money - almost two hundred thousand dollars.  

How did it go that long? How was the issue resolved and what message does DWSD want to see to its customers.

Here’s one take away from this story. The Water Department will come after you. It will collect its money, even if they have to sue you to do it.
