The Allen Water District is a regional water district formed under Ohio Revised Code Section 6119, and as such, is a political subdivision of the State of Ohio. The Allen Water District's actions are directed by a Board of Trustees. This Board consists of four members appointed by each township: American, Bath, Perry and Shawnee, two Members-at-Large appointed by the Board itself and one member appointed by the Allen County Commissioners.
The Board of Trustees of the Allen Water District, Allen County, Ohio is committed to professionally managing and facilitating the installation of public water infrastructure and providing high quality and reliable public water to the customers of the District.
Please contact the Allen Water District to see if there is a waterline that currently serves your property. If there isn't, the District can tell you how close you are to a waterline and get you more information on how you may be able to connect.
The Allen Water District was originally formed in 1989 in an attempt to get water to American, Bath, Perry and Shawnee Townships. The District now represents all 12 townships in Allen County through an agreement with the County Commissioners.

This project was initiated through requests made by the Villages of Lafayette and Harrod to the Allen Water District to determine how to best serve these communities with public water. The project consists of constructing a waterline with fire hydrants from Westminster to the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette serving all residents of both Harrod and Lafayette.
On June 26, 2019, an Informational Meeting was held with property owners who live within the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette to provide some general project information.
On July 11, 2019, the Village Councils of Harrod and Lafayette passed the necessary legislation to move forward with the East Regional Waterline Improvement Project.
Field survey work as well as some soil borings will begin as early as August 12th and continue through September. This preliminary engineering work is necessary for design and will be completed by Prime AE Group, Inc. and DLZ, Inc. A letter will be sent to all property owners within the project area.
On Tuesday, August 27th at 7 p.m. , the District will conduct another Informational Meeting for property owners along the waterline route who live outside the Villages of Harrod and Lafayette. This meeting will be held at Allen East School located at 9105 Harding Highway. A letter will be sent to these property owners.
