What You Need to Know About Lead in Water


Cleveland Water takes multiple steps to make sure the water you drink is safe from a variety of potential contaminants, including lead.

We use a chemical called orthophosphate in our treatment process that has proven effective at reducing the risks of lead in drinking water. We also recognize that after treatment, the best thing we can do is empower our customers with information. In addition to our Lead Connection Lookup, dedicated Lead Treatment page, and outreach activities, we are also happy to provide you with this printable brochure: What You Need to Know About Lead in Water.

We are also here to answer any questions you may have and invite you to call our Lead Hotline at (216) 664-2882 for more information.
