By Aaron Foley DETROIT (Reuters) - Controversial water shutoffs in Detroit will resume on Tuesday after a month-long moratorium to allow delinquent customers to catch up with past due bills, city officials said. During the moratorium, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department was returned to city control after nearly a year of oversight under the state-appointed emergency financial manager. More than 25,000 customers are enrolled in at least one of the authority's payment plans, up from 17,000 when the moratorium began, the water department said in a statement. A city "water fair" on Saturday to help people avoid shutoffs by enrolling in a payment plan drew more than 1,300 people, according to the department.
