The Northwestern Water and Sewer District’s Maintenance Department will be flushing and testing fire hydrants beginning Wednesday through Aug. 11.
Testing will be performed on hydrants in the area of Lake Township (served by Oregon water), parts of Northwood, and the Village of Millbury. This area is bounded by the Wood County line to the north and east, Drouillard Road and Interstate 280 to the west and south to the Village of Millbury at Ohio 795.
Testing will be performed between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Residents may experience rusty water during this period and should run tap water prior to using water for laundry purposes. Should you do laundry during this testing period and rust appears on clothing, rust removing chemicals may be obtained through the Northwestern Water and Sewer District’s office located at 12560 Middleton Pike, Bowling Green, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
