BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, - The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) announces the completion of the Lemoyne Road Water Tower project in Lake Township. The tank is located off of Lemoyne Road, between Latcha and Hanley Roads. The tower distributes water from The City of Toledo and serves approximately 6,500 homes and businesses in Rossford, Northwood, and Walbridge, as well as Lake, Troy, and Perrysburg Townships.
According to District Engineer, Tom Stalter, “this is the tenth elevated tank in our water system. It will assist in meeting the needs of the growing population and industry in Northern Wood County. The tower will also help The District continue to meet requirements of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.”
Construction included building a 1.5 million-gallon elevated storage tank and a 16” diameter water main to provide for better flow within The District’s water distribution system. The additional storage improves water quality and flow during operations and provides redundant capacity during a water emergency. The project was completed by Landmark Structures for approximately $4 million.
