As part of its $26 million annual capital investment in buried infrastructure, Cleveland Water twice annually awards funding for water main projects in direct service suburban cities through the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program (SWMRP).
Cleveland Water’s $26 million annual capital investment in buried infrastructure not only covers the City of Cleveland but also the suburban cities that we provide direct service to. Water main projects in these cities are funded through the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program.
While the weather may not be much of an indication, according to the calendar, spring is officially here. As we shift our focus from frozen pipes to watering lawns, let’s take a look at the numbers from one of the harshest winters our crews have had to contend with in the last 10 years.
To ensure that our customers have the high-quality water they expect delivered when and where they need it, we at Cleveland Water are focusing our Capital Improvement Projects on underground infrastructure. This means investing $26 million a year in capital funds on replacing and renewing aging water mains throughout our service area.
In 2007, Cleveland Water partnered with the Suburban Water Council of Governments to launch the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program (SWMRP), with the intent to renew local water mains in direct service suburbs.
