The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, abbreviated NEORSD, is a public utility district serving most of Cuyahoga County and a portion of Summit County in the U.S. state of Ohio. The district manages three wastewater treatment facilities and all of the interceptor sewers in the service area. It is also responsible for maintaining the quality of water that is released into public waterways including Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River, both from stormwater runoff and sanitary sewage. On December 2, 2015, the Ohio Supreme court declined to reconsider a decision that allowed the sewer district to manage stormwater and to collect fees from district residents to pay for the program. The program had been on hold since 2013, after the cities of Brecksville, Strongsville, Independence, Lyndhurst and Beachwood filed suit, arguing that the sewer district lacked the authority to impose the fee.
