Cleveland Water has a long history of providing safe, great-tasting water. We’ve grown from a single pump station delivering untreated water through just 13 miles of mains in 1856 to four state-of-art treatment facilities serving 1.5 million customers through a network of 5,300 miles of mains.
In celebration of this year’s Drinking Water Week, a national event recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives, Cleveland Water has planned several activities and outreach efforts to celebrate with our customers.
Strong spring storms that churn Lake Erie waters and increase water runoff mix more sediment and other particulate matter into the lake water. The resulting murky water will measure higher in a water quality parameter called turbidity.
Each year Cleveland Water issues a Water Quality Report for our customers. This annual report, also called a Consumer Confidence Report, provides a review of our water quality during the past year, including testing results and information.
As part of its $26 million annual capital investment in buried infrastructure, Cleveland Water twice annually awards funding for water main projects in direct service suburban cities through the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program (SWMRP).
