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 Spetember 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.

Waterline Testing April 4th through April 7th 2017

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District will be doing some waterline testing April 4th through April 7th between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily to investigate a water main leak in the Toledo service area.  

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. 

If you have any questions or concern, please contact the Northwestern Water and Sewer District at 419-354-9090 Extension 2.
