Wayne County is the eleventh largest county in the nation, and the most populous county in the State of Michigan. The County's land area is approximately 626 square miles, and is home to over 2.1 million people, residing in 43 communities. Wayne County's Department of Environment (DOE) was created in 1994 and, in 2010, was merged with the Department of Public Services (DPS) becoming the Environmental Services Group (ESG). ESG's mission is continuously achieved by talented administrators and employees, guided by the strategic goals of CEO Robert A. Ficano.
Throughout this website, you will be able to learn about ESG's many diverse services and programs. From Western Wayne to Downriver, from Detroit to Asia, ESG's successes and leadership in improving our environment is a model for communities around Michigan and the World. We are proud to serve you, our customers, with high-quality and cost-effective environmental services, and we welcome your comments and suggestions. Thanks for visiting.
There are three divisions within the DPS Environmental Services Group:
- The Land Resource Management Division works to protect the land and water resources of the County through their solid waste and soil erosion programs.
- The Facilities Management Division maintains sewer and drain operations, along with operations at the Downriver Wastewater Treatment Plant (serving thirteen Wayne County communities).
- The Water Quality Management Division is focused on protecting and restoring water resources in Wayne County through a watershed management approach.
This web site provides information for all ESG Divisions and their established missions, goals, and organizational structure, along with the services that they provide to the many communities of Wayne County.
