Keeping our water safe is Cleveland Water’s top priority and one way we do this is by staying on top of challenges Lake Erie throws our way. Two of the biggest challenges we face in the summer months are potential Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and their related toxins, and hypoxic water (also known as Dead Zone water).

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!

Recently, there has been discussion about Cleveland Water’s use of tax liens to recover costs associated with water service. We wanted to take a quick moment to provide some additional context and clarity to an issue that, when portrayed inaccurately or incompletely, can generate unnecessary concern among our customers.

Because we value our customers, we work hard to provide the excellent service they deserve. The evidence of this hard work can be found in our decreased estimated bills, improved billing timeliness and accuracy, and our dramatically improved call center performance. We’re not perfect but our service is better today than it was in the past; and, most importantly, we’re striving to make it even better in the future.

At Cleveland Water, we think it is critically important that our customers have access to accurate information about our services and the various ways we work with customers on a daily basis. Recently, one of our local media outlets has inaccurately reported information regarding our use of tax liens.

Cleveland Water is working to resolve reports of discoloration in the water for some eastside suburban communities. These include Beachwood, Garfield Heights, Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Maple Heights, Mayfield Heights, Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Shaker Heights, South Euclid, Warrensville, and Woodmere.
The water is safe to drink and use as normal. However, customers who experience discoloration should refrain from doing laundry since it may stain clothing. THERE IS NO BOIL ALERT IN EFFECT.

As Cleveland Water makes system repairs in the Richmond Heights area, customers may experience some discoloration in their water. The water is safe to drink and use as normal.
We have dispatched crews to flush hydrants in the area to help minimize the impact. We apologize for any inconvenience and will work to complete repairs as soon as possible.

We continue to flush hydrants in the East Side 2nd high service area after repairs on a 48 inch main required a change in flow patterns and caused discolored water yesterday for customers. At this point, the discolored water has been flushed from most of the system. The water in mains in the streets is essentially clear, and customer homes should be running clear too. Should customers notice there is still discolored water in their home, they should allow their water to run for several minutes to clear the plumbing throughout their property.
