Across the Great Lakes, buoys are going overboard, taking their annual spring plunge back into the water. This week, Cleveland Water’s two buoys will join 14 others stationed in Lake Erie that keep tabs on water quality and meteorological conditions.
Cleveland Water’s $26 million annual capital investment in buried infrastructure not only covers the City of Cleveland but also the suburban cities that we provide direct service to. Water main projects in these cities are funded through the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program.
Cleveland Water’s treatment process can take anything out of the water to make it safe for you to drink, but it’s easier and cheaper if we don’t have to. The first step in providing affordable, fresh water to your tap is keeping our source water clean.
In celebration of this year’s #DrinkingWaterWeek, a national event recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives, Cleveland Water has planned a full week of activities and outreach efforts to celebrate with our customers.
While the weather may not be much of an indication, according to the calendar, spring is officially here. As we shift our focus from frozen pipes to watering lawns, let’s take a look at the numbers from one of the harshest winters our crews have had to contend with in the last 10 years.
To ensure that our customers have the high-quality water they expect delivered when and where they need it, we at Cleveland Water are focusing our Capital Improvement Projects on underground infrastructure. This means investing $26 million a year in capital funds on replacing and renewing aging water mains throughout our service area.
