The Northwestern Water & Sewer District (NWWSD) is constructing a Bulk Water Station on a five acre parcel, near the NWWSD water tower. This third permanent location is being built on a five acre plot within the new CSX Intermodal facility, in Henry Township, west of North Baltimore. CSX donated the land to the district as part of a package that has NWWSD water and sewer service available to the facility.
The Northwestern Water & Sewer District provides quality potable water in the rural areas of WoodCounty beyond the reach of existing waterlines by having established two permanent and two seasonal (April-Oct.) bulk water stations.
The water from the bulk water station is safe for personal uses such as filling pools and cisterns and is also suitable for commercial and agricultural use. The water stations employ modern technology and safe equipment such as backflow prevention devices to protect against contamination during filling and loading.
The bulk water dispensing sites have been chosen specifically to provide safe access for large trucks and trailers. The driveway at each site is designed to handle farm trucks, trailers, and tractor trailer tankers with plenty of driveway turning radius.
Water will cost $8.00 per 1,000 gallons purchased. This will be the minimum amount billed per transaction.
Water is purchased at the bulk water stations using the District's plastic access card. Simple and easy to use, the card is similar to a bank's ATM card, with a PIN number to ensure safe, secure access. The same card can be used at both locations. For more information visit: http://www.nwwsd.org/
In addition new the bulk water station will be built for future expansion to offer a WaterShed for 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers. The District currently has five (5) WaterShed locations. The WaterShed is a stand-alone building owned by the Northwestern Water and Sewer District that houses a reverse-osmosis, 9-step drinking water treatment system, which gives you a perfect tasting purified water at a low price! The WaterShed dispenses drinking water in 1 & 5 gallon containers (you provide) for $.25 a gallon. All locations are open 24 hours per day, 7-days a week. Please visit: http://www.nwwsd.org/watershed.html for current locations.
The Northwestern Water & Sewer District is a regional water and sewer district chartered under section 6119 of the Ohio Revised Code. Organized in 1994 to take over the water and sewer operations of the Wood County Sanitary Engineer, the District is specifically intended to meet the following goals within our service area: to establish a uniform water distribution and wastewater collection system; to create uniform and equitable rates; to provide uniform services and to institute consistent regulatory authority for water and wastewater services.
The District provides reliable, high-quality water and sewer service to our customer base in townships and municipalities in and around WoodCounty. By combining systems to share operation and maintenance costs, the District is able to provide professional management and experienced service personnel throughout our service area.
Jerry Greiner, a 1976 graduate of North Baltimore High School, is the current Executive Director of the NWWSD.
