New WaterShed Open in Northwood

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, - The Northwestern Water and Sewer District is proud to announce the opening of its ninth WaterShed in Northwest Ohio.   The District and officials from the City of Northwood celebrated the opening of the Northwood WaterShed with a grand opening ceremony.

To mark the occasion, The District is declaring today, “Free Water Friday” at the new Northwood location.  Please bring your own bottles and containers to fill up for free! 

A WaterShed is a stand-alone building owned by The District that houses a reverse-osmosis, 9-step water treatment system and provides perfect tasting purified drinking water at a low price.  Cost is 25 cents per gallon or a dollar for five gallons.

Over ten years ago, The District began building WaterSheds as an alternative source of drinking water for residents in rural Wood County on private water systems with poor water quality.  In May, total WaterShed sales reached the $1 million mark.  The income is used to maintain the 9 properties and invested into The District’s operational budget. 

The new WaterShed is located at 1740 S. Wheeling Street, in Northwood, Ohio, located in the Frisch’s Big Boy parking lot. 

The District plans to open a 10th location at the Walbridge Library located on Main Street this summer. 


Our goal is to be the premier water and wastewater provider in Northwestern Ohio. We are committed to sound financial management, responsible environmental stewardship, responsive public service, superior customer service, and responsible economic growth.  We strive to field a skilled, respectful, and cooperative workforce dedicated to the highest professional and ethical standards; we support them with appropriate training and technology.
