Northwestern Water and Sewer District Board Update
BOWLING GREEN, Ohio, – The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (the District) is moving forward on several projects approved by the Board of Trustees. Today, the board passed a several resolutions to accept bids on upcoming construction projects. These investments will improve and repair water and sewer infrastructure within the communities of Rossford, McComb and Weston.
“We received several competitive bids on all three projects,” said Jerry Greiner, President of the District. “This late winter – early spring mild weather is attractive to small and mid-sized contractors looking for work. Their material and labor costs must be reasonable as they try to pick and choose work, which can keep their employees busy, yet still be profitable.”
The District can now move forward with construction on several projects in the following areas:
The Lorraine Place sanitary sewer replacement project was awarded to Cash Services of Northwood, Ohio for a bid of $88,470. Engineers estimate: $128,755. This project will replace an aged sewer line along Lorraine Place in Rossford. Work will involve excavation along Lorraine Place.
