Twin-Keystone Water District (TKWD)
The Twin-Keystone Water District (TKWD) is a separate political subdivision, established in 1966 per Chapter 6119 of the Ohio Revised Code as a regional water and sewer district, per a petition submitted by the Twinsburg Township Board of Trustees. Formerly known as the Twinsburg Township Water and Sewer District, TKWD is governed by Summit County Common Pleas Court Orders issued in 1966, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1979, 2006, and 2012. TKWD offices are located at Twinsburg Township Hall. TKWD levies surcharges on water usage throughout the TKWD area, which includes all of the Township, along with additional land annexed to adjacent communities since inception of the District, except where removed from the District by mutual agreement between the District and adjacent communities. TKWD surcharges are collected by the City of Cleveland as part of District customers' quarterly water bills. The City of Cleveland withholds a portion of TKWD surcharges for administrative costs. Remaining TKWD surcharge revenues are distributed to TKWD, per TKWD's agreement with the City of Cleveland.

The TKWD's primary purpose is to provide a public water supply to the District. TKWD owns water lines throughout the District and currently contracts with the City of Cleveland to supply the water that flows through those lines. TKWD first contracted with the City of Cleveland in 1968, and then entered into a new contract with Cleveland in 1982. The TKWD Board takes this mission seriously and looks forward to evaluating the current contract, services, and surcharge amounts, policies, and procedures.
