Maumee and Sylvania join growing list of communities participating in aquifer study

Maumee Mayor Rich Carr addressed the Maumee Committee of the Whole (WNWO).

Members of TAWA are now officially looking into the Michindoh Aquifer.

Monday night, Maumee and Sylvania city councils unanimously agreed to join a study that Whitehouse began, into a test well for the aquifer.

They join Liberty Center, Henry County and Whitehouse that have already agreed to the study by Artisian of Pioneer.

Toledo announced it would not move forward with the previous agreement for the Toledo Area Water Authority last week.

"I think what you'll see is a regional water authority where multiple townships, cities, villages will all come together and have an alternative system," said Maumee Mayor Rich Carr.

Perrysburg, Northwestern Water and Sewer District, and Fulton County will all decide to join the study or not over the next couple weeks.
