Perrysburg’s heritage can be traced to its water resources. It is the responsibility of the City and its consumers to protect the waterways. The Department of Public Utilities (DPU) is responsible for the City's wastewater collection and treatment, water distribution, and stormwater management, as well as the City's relationships with other public and private entities with respect to those issues.
The department is responsible for a wide variety of operations throughout the City such as repairing water main breaks; maintaining sanitary and storm sewers; operating an 8 million gallon per day wastewater treatment plant; implementing measures to manage stormwater and ditches; and providing excellent customer service to our consumers.

Homeowner Sanitary Sewer Grant
On December 5, 2020, City of Perrysburg City Council allocated more funding to help residents remove clear water connections from the sanitary sewer. The Homeowner Sanitary Sewer Grant provides funding for an 80% grant up to $10,000 of project costs, meaning up to an $8,000 grant. If no storm sewer tap is available, a storm sewer tap must be installed as part of the project, and an 80% grant is payable up to $15,000 of project costs, meaning up to a $12,000 grant.
The purpose of the Homeowner Sanitary Sewer Grant is to assist residents within the City boundaries to remove clean water connections from the sanitary sewer system. Grants have typically been used to remove footer drains or storm water sump pumps from the sanitary sewer. In certain areas of the City, clean water connections into the sanitary sewer system have contributed to sewer backups in times of heavy rains.
