Cleveland Water takes multiple steps to make sure the water you drink is safe from a variety of potential contaminants, including lead.
Our use of orthophosphate in our treatment process has substantially reduced - by about 90% - the levels of lead found in our customer's drinking water over the past 20 years; however, there are still some people's homes and businesses in Greater Cleveland that contain lead pipes, plumbing and service connections.

The discoloration that was affecting water in the vicinity of E. 152nd Street has been resolved. If you are still experiencing discoloration, run your tap for a few minutes until the water runs clear. If possible, use the lowest sink in your home for flushing (ex., a basement utility tub). Use cold water only! If this does not resolve the issue, please contact our 24-hr Emergency Service Line at 216-664-3060.

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).

Our raw water intakes sit far out into the lake away from pollution sources, but no raw and untreated lake water is safe to drink without some level of treatment – even when that water comes from a great source like Lake Erie.
