Fire needs three things in order to burn – oxygen, heat and fuel – and water makes it hard for the fuel to be in contact with the air. So, water helps to prevent combustion and thus, fire. That means we have a few friends at our local fire departments we need to support; and, more than 75,000 fire hydrants throughout out service area to which we need to keep the water, and water pressure, flowing!

Delivering safe, quality drinking water to our customers is important. It takes a lot of science and a lot of engineering – from chemistry, biology and freshwater ecology to civil, sanitary and electrical engineering. Understanding laws, regulations, and industry standards are also critical to ensuring the water we provide our customers is safe.

The purpose of the Water Review Board is to provide a neutral forum to settle disputes concerning your water service. The Board is not an extension of the collections process. Instead, the Water Review Board acts as an objective third party in order to make unbiased decisions about your dispute based on the facts presented in each case.

This week, Cleveland Water submitted our lead cityside connection map and supporting documentation in accordance with Ohio House Bill 512 (HB512). The bill requires community water systems to identify and map areas known or likely to contain lead service lines. The maps will also assist Ohio EPA with ensuring proper lead and copper sampling is conducted in areas of lead service lines and proper notifications are made to customers.
