Familiarize yourself with the two different types of sewers in Rossford: Sanitary Sewer and Storm Sewer.
Sanitary Sewer – carries water discharged from in-home plumbing such as sinks, toilets, bathtubs and showers.
Storm Sewer – water from a rain or snow event.
If you are experiencing sewer backup in your home, please call Northwestern Water & Sewer District at 419-354-9090 to determine if your Sanitary Sewer & Storm Sewer are still combined. If they are, this could be the source of your sewer backup. Some homeowners may be eligible for Sanitary Sewer Grant Program money to assist them in correcting this issue. Please see the link below for more information.
