Regional Water Discussions
The District currently serves 6,500 customers in Northern Wood County with water provided from The City of Toledo. In 2024, our water contract with Toledo will expire. The District is currently considering options for providing water to our customers served with Toledo water. Updates will be posted on this page and on District President Jerry Greiner’s Blog.
On Tuesday, December 18, at 6:30 p.m., The District will host a second informational meeting for our members and customers currently provided with Toledo Water. At this meeting, information will be presented on the Toledo Regional Water Commission, the option of using water from The City of Bowling Green, and finally, present information on the possible option of using the Michindoh Aquifer as a water source.
On February 15, 2018, The District hosted an informational meeting for our members and customers on these options: The Toledo Area Water Authority and the most recent (Phase II) Wood County Economic Development Commission (WCEDC) Study, which looks at the feasibility using water provided by The City of Bowling Green.
The District along with other communities that contract with The City of Toledo for water, have studied the possibility of regional water for decades. Those communities include Fulton and Lucas counties, the cities of Maumee, Perrysburg and Sylvania, Village of Whitehouse. Below is a series of studies conducted by various entities completed in 2016.
