Logo DTETwo-thirds of the time DTE customers are without power is due to trees. Tree trimming is a common sense solution to prevent outages from happening in the first place. The process for trimming trees is designed to foster communication and collaboration with customers every step of the way.

Before trimming, DTE will send you a letter letting you know they will be in the area. If trimming is needed on your property, DTE will knock on your door and leave a door hanger describing the necessary trimming. Your planner will leave his or her contact information to answer any questions you may have regarding the work planned for your property.

PFAS WaterThe Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is reminding everyone to avoid foam on Michigan lakes and rivers known to have PFAS in the water, including the Huron River. Swimming or bathing in water containing PFAS is NOT a health concern because the amount of PFAS is typically low compared to the foam. Although swallowing PFAS is the main way to get it in your body, an accidental swallow of river or lake water is NOT a health concern.

MDHHS has issued a Do Not Eat advisory for fish from the Huron River where North Wixom Road crosses in Oakland County to the mouth of the Huron River as it enters Lake Erie in Wayne County.

Fireworks GraphicConsumer fireworks are readily available in Michigan and have become a popular way to celebrate holidays. However, the use of consumer fireworks comes with great responsibility that should be taken seriously. Ypsilanti Township has restricted the use of fireworks to the absolute minimum allowed by state law. Despite those restrictions, the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office receives a high volume of fireworks complaints on a regular basis. Most violations are for setting them off on days not permitted or after midnight.

Residents are respectfully asked to follow all safety rules and legal requirements when igniting fireworks in neighborhoods. Please be respectful of others in your neighborhood who may be adversely affected by long periods of loud explosions from fireworks displays.

For Labor Day, fireworks are permitted the Saturday & Sunday preceding Labor Day 11:00am - 11:45pm. Fireworks are NOT allowed on Labor Day (Monday).

Fireworks violations can be reported to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office by calling (734) 994 - 2911 for non-emergency police service.
