Catch Up With Cleveland Water This Holiday Weekend

A little tap-logged from last week’s events, our Cleveland Water buggy’s scheduled events for this upcoming weekend are a little light. That said, we’re still excited to meet you out in the community even if we need to give the buggy a little holiday.

Did you know Cleveland Water is moving to monthly billing next year? It’ll be a little transition but it’ll be Billing Made Simple once we get rolling. So, please feel free to bring your questions about monthly billing to us at events this weekend, we are tap full of answers! (See what we did there?)

Follow the Water Buggy

Follow Cleveland Water’s Water Buggy this weekend at events throughout Northeastern Ohio.  Grab a cup of water, fill your reusable water bottles, your doggy bowls, or the baby’s sippy cup, and visit our community engagement table to get all of your water questions answered.  We are excited to meet you and happy to keep you hydrated.

TRAFFIC ALERT: West 110th in Cleveland Closed Between Baltic and Clifton

Repairs to a broken eight inch water main on West 110th in Cleveland are anticipated to be completed today.

UPDATE: Discolored Water Clearing For East Side Customers

We continue to flush hydrants in the East Side 2nd high service area after repairs on a 48 inch main required a change in flow patterns and caused discolored water yesterday for customers. At this point, the discolored water has been flushed from most of the system. The water in mains in the streets is essentially clear, and customer homes should be running clear too. Should customers notice there is still discolored water in their home, they should allow their water to run for several minutes to clear the plumbing throughout their property.

Repairs to Main May Affect Some East Side Customers; Water is Safe

As we work to make scheduled repairs to a 48 inch transmission main on Fairmount Boulevard, we will be serving some of our 2nd high service area customers from a different main. This change in flow pattern may cause some discoloration in your water, but rest assured, your water is safe to drink and use as normal.
