Wood County Storm Water Management Program
The Wood County Engineer's Office is responsible for storm water management on behalf of the Wood County Commissioners, as well as Lake, Middleton, Perrysburg, and Troy Townships in addition to the City of Rossford and Villages of Millbury and Walbridge.
The Wood County Engineer's Office coordinates activities among the various stakeholders, providing support for each of the Minimum Control Measures (MCMs) outlined in the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency's (Ohio EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit.
Why Storm Water?
Storm water runoff can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants which then flow into storm sewers, or directly into a body of water. Anything that flows into a storm sewer is considered a discharge, and enters the system untreated. It then eventually makes its way into the water the we use for drinking, and recreation.
