All the Details on Drinking Water Week 2019

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.

Understanding Turbidity and Why it Matters

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.

Protect Lake Erie by Protecting its Watershed

Our 1.4 million customers are part of the more than 12 million people who rely on Lake Erie as their source of drinking water. Clean water and a healthy Lake Erie is critical not only for our community to survive but for it to thrive as a region that leverages its assets to build economic, social and environmental well-being for all.
