Water and Sewer

General Information
Walker is served entirely by the Grand Rapids water and sanitary sewer system.  Grand Rapids owns, operates, and maintains both systems within the City of Walker.  Water and sewer are considered retail utilities, meaning it is sold individually to property owners by Grand Rapids, not by Walker.  Residents should go directly to Grand Rapids for questions regarding water and sewer.
