DETROIT -- Detroit's water and sewer department is suspending its shutoff efforts for 15 days.
They are hoping this will give customers a chance to settle their outstanding bills.
The water department started the shut offs in March to collect nearly $90 million.
They say up to 50-percent of water and sewer bills are past due.
