WaterShed Locations | Drinking Water Filling Stations

The District has opened it’s 12th location!  The newest WaterShed is on SR 65 and SR 235 in Washington Township.  

*** The District has increased disinfecting efforts at all of our WaterShed locations, during the COVID-19 Health Concerns***

Our WaterShed locations are stand-alone buildings owned by the Northwestern Water and Sewer District. They have a reverse-osmosis and provide great tasting purified drinking water at a low price:  $.25 per gallon or $1 for 5-gallons.  Over ten years ago, The District saw a need in the rural communities for purified drinking water filling stations for those using well systems.   Since then their popularity has grown and so have our number of locations.

How much is it?

Anyone can use The WaterShed! The WaterShed dispenses drinking water in 1 & 5 gallon containers (you provide) for $.25 a gallon.

How to sanitize your water container:

  1. Use household liquid bleach that does not have an added scent (like lemon).
  2. Add 1 teaspoon (64 drops or 5 milliliters) of household liquid bleach to 1 quart (32oz, 4 cups, or about 1 liter) of water.
  3. Pour this into a clean storage container and shake well, making sure that the solution coats the entire inside of the container.
  4. Let sit at least 30 seconds, and then pour out solution.
  5. Let air dry OR rinse with clean water that has already been made safe, if available.
