The Findlay and Hancock County region, including adjoining counties, are not affected by the water quality problems in the Toledo area.
Fresh water in Findlay and nearby subdivisions is drawn from the above-ground Findlay reservoirs east of the city, and not from Lake Erie sources. Smaller towns use well water or have their own reservoirs, such as Fostoria.
Supermarkets and other stores in Findlay, Hancock County and nearby areas were quickly cleaned out of bottled water Saturday morning as people from the Toledo area came to buy up bottles of fresh water.
Here are the areas affected, according to WTOL-TV:
All of Lucas County
Village of Metamora
Eastern Swan Creek Township
Village of Whitehouse
La Salle Township
South County Water Customers–Michigan
