DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit is scheduled to resume shutting off water to customers for unpaid bills.
Monday marked the end of the water shutoff moratorium, and the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department was expected to send crews out Tuesday to turn off service to customers who owe money and haven't made payment arrangements.
Detroit says the last of a series of "water fairs" held Saturday helped at least 1,300 residents avoid having their taps run dry after the shutoff moratorium. Detroit says 25,000 customers were enrolled in water payment plans Monday, up from 17,000 a month earlier.
The city stepped up shutoffs in March of those 60 days behind or owing more than $150. About 15,000 customers had service shut off in April-June.
The city has faced international criticism for the shutoffs.
