Please join the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) for its 3rd Annual DWSD Construction Business to Business Opportunities Workshop
About this Event The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department's (DWSD) 3rd Annual DWSD Construction Business to Business Opportunities Workshop is a great forum for prime contractors, sub-contractors, and construction-related business owners to learn about DWSD’s construction projects and how your business can participate. The 2021 event will be virtual – the event will bring the same valuable information provided in past in-person workshops.
