Bowling Green, Ohio
At The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) there is nothing more important than providing our customers with safe, reliable water.
As part of this mission, we issue our annual water quality reports. In 1996, Congress amended the Safe Drinking Water Act by adding a provision requiring all community water systems to deliver a brief annual water quality report. The report is referred to as a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
Because The District distributes water from multiple sources, we issue a total of thirteen reports across Wood, Hancock, Henry, and Sandusky counties. Note that the reports summarize information for the previous calendar year. Therefore, the most recently released reports will list the previous year in their title.
The CCR includes information on our source water (i.e., rivers, lakes, or reservoirs), the levels of any detected contaminants, compliance with drinking water rules, plus some educational material.
The CCR is developed in accordance with the EPA guidance document which explains all of the requirements for report content, format, and distribution.
