Delivering safe, quality drinking water to our customers is important. It takes a lot of science and a lot of engineering – from chemistry, biology and freshwater ecology to civil, sanitary and electrical engineering. Understanding laws, regulations, and industry standards are also critical to ensuring the water we provide our customers is safe.
We want to take this opportunity to reassure you that your Cleveland Water is safe to drink, as always, straight from the tap.
Recent news has brought to light that sediment years-ago dredged from the Cuyahoga River, and disposed of in an area of Lake Erie referred to as CLA-1, has migrated from its original location. The sediment contains harmful pollutants and has moved within five miles of the shoreline closer to our Nottingham Water Treatment Plant intake but there’s no need for Cleveland Water customers to worry about the quality of their drinking water.
