We are aware that some customers on the west side of Cleveland are experiencing discolored water. We want to assure our customers the water is safe to drink. The discoloration is likely due to a change in the direction of water flowing through some water mains. This change in flow direction can stir up sediment settled at the bottom of the mains.

Did you notice that the water coming out of your tap was a little warmer today than it was a few days ago? You can thank summer and strong winds over Lake Erie for that.

Cleveland Water works hard to make sure its customers consume safe, quality drinking water at all times. One way we do this is by regulating backflow. Backflow occurs when a drop in water pressure results in water from an unprotected cross connection to be pulled into your plumbing.
