Water Assistance

Residents of Madison Heights who may need financial assistance with their water bills have options for support, including:

• The Great Lakes Water Authority offers the Water Residential Assistance Program (WRAP); More info is available at https://www.glwater.org/assistance/

• The Low-income Households Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP), which is offered by the State of Michigan.

• The City of Madison Heights offers residents the option of paying their bill monthly instead of every three months, to help with monthly budgeting.


As the city’s cost for purchasing water and water treatment services continue to grow, the cost of delivering services and maintaining water infrastructure continues to rise. Additionally, funds are needed for projects such as water and sewer line replacements, water main break repairs and hydrant maintenance.
