Conservation Contest

At The Northwestern Water and Sewer District, we support the conservation efforts of our water to improve quality and protect our water sources.  At The Toledo Zoo & Aquarium, conservation programs better the lives of animals and ecosystems. We are excited to be giving away two Family memberships to the Toledo Zoo in our Facebook “Conservation Contest”.


TYPE OF FISH HINTS: In the 1800s, these fish were abundant in this local river, however, the demand for caviar along with commercial overfishing caused the population to decline and ultimately disappear.  These fish are currently one of the most threatened species in the Great Lakes. The oldest and largest fish in the Great Lakes, these fish have a life span of 50 to 150 years, can grow to be more than six feet long and, weigh up to 200 lbs.

Although canceled this year due to Covid-19, the Zoo and biologists with the Ohio Division of Wildlife and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service typically release these young fish into the water each fall near Walbridge Park.  MORE HINTS

NAME OF RIVER HINTS:  This river serves as the water source for Bowling Green and several townships in Wood County.  It’s the largest river in Northwest Ohio and starts in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Grand Rapids, Rossford, and Toledo are cities found along this river.
