Water, sewer line projects updated

The Northwestern Water and Sewer District delivers water and sewer services to over 20,000 customers in Wood, Henry, Sandusky, and Hancock counties. Although many of its projects are performed underground, utility work can impact water and sewer service in addition to roads throughout the service area.

The district will be closed on Monday in observance of New Year’s. For after-hours emergencies, contact your county sheriff’s department.
