Proposed water rate changes for people who rely on the Detroit Water and Sewage Department are great news for some and not-so-great news for others. It all depends upon where you live.

Some communities could see a 14% increase in what they pay for water service - while other communities may see over a 16% decrease in water rates.

The communities which could see the biggest drop in rates include:

Harrison Township: Down 16.27%

Huron Township: Down 12.90%

Lincoln Park: Down 13.16%

Northville: Down 13.95%

Oakland County Drain Commission: Down 19.35%

The communities which could see the biggest increase in rates include:

Clinton Township: Up 12.82%

Rockwood: Up 14.17%

Romeo: Up 14%

Wixom: Up 11.3%
