During a heatwave, some residents may take it upon themselves to open hydrants in an effort to beat the heat. While we agree that Cleveland Water is cool and refreshing, opening hydrants can be dangerous, costly, and wasteful.
We work hard to make sure the drinking water delivered to your home or business is safe at all times. One way we do this is by regulating backflow, which reduces the possible contamination of drinking water from other water sources.
Utility scams tend to increase during the holiday season, which is why Utility Scam Awareness Day is recognized each year in November. Cleveland Water wants to make sure our customers are aware of what to look for in the event that someone shows up at or calls your home claiming to be a Cleveland Water employee.

At Cleveland Water, we know that access to a reliable supply of safe drinking water is critical to keeping the people you care about safe. That is why we work hard to make sure the water we deliver to the 1.4 million people who count on us meets and exceeds the highest standards for quality and safety.
