District Project Update

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, – The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) delivers water and sewer services to over 20,000 customers in Wood, Henry, Sandusky, and Hancock counties.  Although many of our projects are performed underground, our utility work can impact water and sewer service in addition to roads throughout our service area.

The District’s visitor parking lot is now open.  Driveway access to the visitor lot is maintained.  Through mid-October, shoulder and lane restrictions are possible along SR 582 between SR 25 and I-75 for paving work.  

The District office will be closed on Monday, October 11, in observance of Columbus Day.
