Cleveland Water’s state-of-the-art water treatment process uses orthophosphate, an anti-corrosive that creates a thin layer of film inside water pipes throughout our system. Orthophosphate acts as a barrier on metal pipes and fixtures to prevent lead from leaching into the water. This protection works on both cityside connections and customer-side connections, plus the plumbing and fixtures inside your home.
At Cleveland Water, we know that access to a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water is critical to keeping the people you care about safe. That is why we work had to make sure the water we deliver is to our 1.4 million customers meets and exceeds the highest standards for quality and safety. We take multiple steps so that the water we deliver to your home is safe from lead and other contaminants.
