New WaterShed in Weston

The District will soon open a new WaterShed in Northwest Ohio. This WaterShed will be located in the Village of Weston at the village maintenance building near the corner of Main and Locust Streets. This WaterShed will be a walk up location with a dispenser similar to the Walbridge WaterShed. The new Weston WaterShed will be our 14th one! These popular water dispensers offer water at a great price, just 25 cents for one gallon and $1 for 5 gallons. Remember to bring your own containers. For a list of all locations and how to use a WaterShed go to NWWSD.ORG.

What's Happening on Willowbend near River Road?

Crews have been working along the Maumee River near Willowbend Road all summer on a project to replace a key part of our sewer infrastructure. The Willowbend pump station project is being performed to ensure that wastewater does not back up and overflow into the street, streams, someone’s home, the Maumee River, or Lake Erie.

Pump stations are a key element of wastewater collection and treatment. They help move wastewater to treatment facilities. Due to residential growth in northern Wood County, The District is investing $2.3 million to replace this pump station that serves over 1,000 homes in the Saddlebrook, Sanctuary, and Carrington Woods subdivisions. Once complete, it will have the capacity to move 2,200 gallons per minute of wastewater from these areas to the LCWRF. For updates on the closure of River Road at Willowbend Road, go to or follow us on social media.
