NATURAL RESOURCES

WATER

Northwest Ohio is located on the shores of Lake Erie at the mouth of the Maumee River.  This unique location provides the region with the benefits of a Great Lake community and an abundance of rivers and streams.  The fresh water provided by Lake Erie is a resource for industry, a basis for recreation, and a necessity to sustain life.
