Fire Hydrants During a Snowstorm: If there is a fire hydrant near your home, please take a few extra minutes to ensure the hydrant is clear of snow. You should clear a path to the street and three feet around the hydrant. This ensures that in the event of an emergency, the fire division is able to find and use the fire hydrant.

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.
