The Redford Township Water Department bills 22,000 residential and commercial water accounts. The clerical staff prepares bimonthly water bills along with collecting and processing all payments made to the Township. Water bills are mailed approximately 3 weeks prior to the due date. Water bills are normally due on the 15th of the month unless the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday. For water billing, questions call 313-387-2670 and select option Number 4. View the BSA Online website to access your water billing history.
If you have complaints regarding work that has been done in the field (water main breaks, landscaping), you can contact the Water Superintendent or the Water Foreman. Their information can be found on the Public Services page.
Payment is accepted at the Leo Snage Public Services Building located at 12200 Beech Daly. Normal office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Township offices are closed for most national holidays.
Payments can be mailed with a check or money order. Return envelopes are provided with both the tax and water bills. If you do not have the return envelope, payments should be mailed to:

Automatic Withdrawal (ACH)
Automatic withdrawal from a checking or savings account is available for water payments. To enroll, contact the Water Department to receive an enrollment card. We must have your signature on file authorizing the withdrawal of funds from the designated financial institution so this form cannot be completed online. Customers are asked to continue to pay future bills until they receive a water bill that designates "Automatic Withdrawal - Do Not Pay". Withdrawals that cannot be completed will be treated as non-sufficient funds transactions and are subject to additional fees. If you enroll in automatic payment and change banks, you will have to complete a new enrollment card. If you move you will have to contact the Water Department to stop the automatic withdrawal.
