(Sylvania, OH) Sylvania is the next suburban community to consider a proposed regional water authority.
Sylvania City Council will host a public discussion tonight on the proposal to combine the region's water system between Toledo and eight of its suburbs.
Sylvania's mayor led most of the year-long discussions, under the threat of that community's ability to build its own water treatment plant.
Using land easements lined up over the last decade, Sylvania leaders could establish their own Lake Erie water intake and pipe it directly to residents. That's now the back-up plan in case local opposition-- or Toledo voters-- derail the proposed regional water authority.
Tonight's meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Sylvania Municipal building.
