Several days ago we told you that Lake Erie’s bottom water temperatures had reached below the magic number of 39.2°F, meaning the surface could freeze as long as the air temperature above the lake stayed below freezing.
We know you work hard for your money so we want to be accountable to our customers for every dollar we spend.
Cleveland Water’s rates allow us to make necessary and critical improvements to guarantee our customers a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water. We make these improvements through our Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
Knowing how you use water in your home every day is an essential step in saving water and therefore costs. Equally important is knowing what happens to your money when you pay your water bill every month.
Since the start of 2019, the temperature of the lake water coming into Cleveland Water’s Garrett Morgan Treatment Plant has stayed below 39.2°F (4°C). This is the magic number that signals the lake’s surface can now start to freeze.
