There are several construction projects happening in Rossford, as major waterlines are being replaced on seven different streets.
The work won't be finished until summer, but it is expected to improve water pressure for residents.
Crews will be replacing 6-12 inch waterlines, some more than 60 years old. The project will cost over $1 million, but it will be worth the wait for residents.
"It should improve water quality throughout those seven areas of town," said Jerry Greiner, the executive director of Northwestern Water and Sewer District. "It will get better water pressure, as well, to homes and improve the flow throughout the community."
The new lines will also let people multi-task when doing chores inside their homes.
"Having two or three things going on at once – washing dishes and showering, perhaps – they should see more water, as well," Greiner said.
Robert Socie owns the Bulldog Diner. He says he's happy the problem is getting fixed, but says all the construction could impact his business.
"It does hurt a little bit with parking, because they got the road tore up right in front of the diner," he said.
