Storm Update 8-25-23: Damage Report Survey Related to Storm Damage 8/23-8/25

Storm Update 8-25-23


Please fill out the Self-Reporting Survey provided by Wayne County:

This report is not a guarantee a damage claim will be granted. It is the first step in the process of assessing damages and trying to receive federal or state aid. 

Trenton received another half inch or so of rain last night during the latest storms, we have some tree damage and also some residents without power. As it stands right now we have about 120 homes without power, DTE advises they think 80% of the outages will be restored by Saturday evening. Please stay away from downed lines and be aware of your surroundings. If you see a downed line please call 911.

Our WWTP (Waste Water Treatment Plant) is operating and fully functional, we are still holding 20 million gallons in our retention basins that will be treated in the coming days. We have had to by-pass to the river as had several communities nearby. Virtually every system in the region that received large amounts of precipitation was forced to by-pass. 

As stated in the previous updates, the system worked as it should, unfortunately the system was overwhelmed with an incredible quantity of water in a short period of time. 

As of this update we have about 75 homes reporting water in their basement over the last 48 hours. If you have had water in your basement and are in need of a “Special Pick Up”, please call DPW with your address at 734-675-5496, there will be no charge for this service, but please be patient as we get through all impacted areas of the city.

Lastly, I would like to again thank the “Trenton Team” of our WWTP crew and DPW crews for working hard to mitigate the issues. Another vital part of the “Trenton Team” is the community members that have stepped up to help each other out, this is one of the many things that sets Trenton apart from most communities. 

Best Regards,

Dean Creech, City Administrator
