McComb officials will lobby the Northwestern Water and Sewer District for membership this week. The Courier reports a meeting will be held Thursday for village representatives to present their case to join the district. If accepted, the organization would oversee McComb’s water plant and sewage treatment plant. So far there’s no timeline on when the district might make a decision.
Village officials say increased maintenance costs and regulations from the EPA are the primary reasons for joining the group. Water and sewer rates are likely to go up in McComb, but council members have said that was likely going to happen no matter what. The details of any cost increases are still being analyzed.
The Northwestern Water and Sewer District manages water and sewer plants for towns in Wood County, as well as some in Seneca and Sandusky counties.
