​​​​​​​​​​​​​Prior to 2022, three separate water departments — with three different specialties — worked independently to provide quality water services and ensure the public health ​of the Greater Ann Arbor community. Today, these three units are working together as one — Ann Arbor Water​​ — committed to excellence, scientifically based data and innovative solutions.
