Cleveland Water is Safe Despite Migration of Dredged Materials

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.

Staying cool for summertime fun time!

Summertime – the time of year we have all been waiting for! It is time for warm weather, cookouts and picnics, vacations, and getting the chance to do some of our favorite outdoor activities like biking, swimming and gardening. It’s all fun and games…until…we realize we’ve been in the sun all day without protecting ourselves from sun burn or heat stroke. As a result, we find our days of fun in the sun ending with trips to the emergency room.
