On Tuesday, April 4th through Thursday, April 7th, between the hours of 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM daily, the Northwestern Water & Sewer District will be performing a water main leak investigation project in our Toledo service area (click here for map of the affected area).
This includes 6,500 customers in Northwood, Rossford, Walbridge, Lake Township, Troy Township and Perrysburg Township on the Toledo water system.
This project requires the closing of multiple valves within the water distribution system to direct the water flow in a specific path to sense leaks within the system. In addition to closing the valves there will be significant water flushing on Oregon and Glenwood Roads.
Pressure fluctuations may occur due to this work, but will subside upon completion of the work. This activity may also cause the water within the system to discolor, but the water will be safe for consumption and will not require boiling.
If your water becomes discolored you may run the water until it becomes clear. If planning to do laundry during this period please confirm that the water is clear beforehand; otherwise, staining could occur.
