Water / Sewer Departments

With a shared Staff of 4 full time employees, the Water and Sewer Departments work separately on their respective daily functions. Currently, water can enter the city from two sources: Avon Lake and/or Lorain. Since 2011, Avon Lake has been our primary source. Our sewer system is processed by the City of Lorain.
