Sanitary & Storm Sewer Difference

The City of Rossford has experienced unseasonal amounts of rain this past summer. Many residents have called with concerns about the “sewer”.  There are 2 different types of sewers in Rossford: Sanitary Sewers and Storm Sewers.

Sanitary Sewer – carries water discharged from in-home plumbing such as sinks, toilets, bathtubs and showers

Storm Sewer – carries 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 funding to assist them in correcting this issue.
