MILLBURY — The Lemoyne Road Water Tower project in Lake Township is complete.
The Northwestern Water and Sewer District announced the completion on Tuesday.
The tank is located off of Lemoyne Road, between Latcha and Hanley Roads. The tower distributes water from The City of Toledo and serves approximately 6,500 homes and businesses in Rossford, Northwood and Walbridge, as well as Lake, Troy and Perrysburg townships.
“This is the 10th elevated tank in our water system,” said Tom Stalter, district engineer. “It will assist in meeting the needs of the growing population and industry in Northern Wood County. The tower will also help The district continue to meet requirements of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.”
Construction included building a 1.5 million-gallon elevated storage tank and a 16-inch diameter water main to provide for better flow within the district’s water distribution system. The additional storage improves water quality and flow during operations and provides redundant capacity during a water emergency. The project was completed by Landmark Structures for approximately $4 million.
