Welcome to the City of Northwood



Welcome to the City of Northwood, OH

Northwood is a city located in Wood County within the U.S. state of Ohio.  Northwood is a small community.  The population was 5,350 in the 2015 census.  According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 8.53 square miles (22.09 KM), all land.  We offer citizens and visitors a safe and clean community.  We are proud of the City of Northwood!

A bit of history about Northwood...

Northwood can trace its origins back to when Wood County's nineteenth commonwealth, Ross Township, was enacted on April 18, 1874.  It was not until September 8, 
1962 that the entire area of Ross Township would become incorporated into the Village of Northwood.  The Ross Township News editor, Larry Brough, suggested the name "Northwood" because the village was located in the most northwestern part of Wood County.  The Village of Northwood officially became the City of Northwood on January 1, 1982.

The District is working on a project to remove all remaining lead service lines identified in our system.  We will replace 322 lines in Rossford and in eastern Northwood.

PROJECT UPDATE: March 14, 2019
As crews replace lead service lines near Glenwood Road in Rossford, they plan to move to Northwood by next week (March 18, 2019).  Notifications and additional information on how the project will impact you will be delivered to your home before construction starts.  Please check your porch or mailbox for a red envelope containing important information.

Right now, the contractor plans to start on Tracy Road and Andrus Roads in Northwood, followed by Ware Street.  See if your home will be impacted and how progress is moving on the interactive map.  

In Rossford, crews will continue moving meters from inside your home to the meter pits.  You have probably seen the letter regarding expansion tanks.  Here is a link with more information.  


Restoration is scheduled to take place in the summer of 2019.
