Enjoy a Safe Summer with These Water Tips

Planning a summer barbecue? We've got a few tips to make sure anything water-related doesn't spoil the party.

Doing Our Part to Make Cleveland Lead Safe

The health and safety of our customers and community are of utmost importance to us. That’s why we’re taking part in the United Way’s Lead Safe Home Summit.

Using Past Innovation and Future Technology to Keep Drinking Water Safe

Environmental laws and regulations, spurred in large part by the last Cuyahoga River fire in 1969, have dramatically improved the quality of our nation’s waterways. But as these legacy issues are addressed, new environmental challenges have evolved – ones that are much less visible than a burning river.

A Brief History of the Cuyahoga River and Cleveland Drinking Water

Like the city itself, the development of Cleveland Water has been defined by Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River. From the beginning, our goal has always been to deliver the best quality drinking water possible to our customers.

What to Know about Backflow

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.

Two Cleveland Water Plants Recognized for 15 Years of Superior Water Quality

The health and safety of our customers is of vital importance to us. We know that safe, quality drinking water is critical to the wellbeing and growth of our community. That’s why we’re committed to providing our customers with the highest quality drinking water.

How Cleveland Water is Prepared for Lake Erie Summer Water Quality

Every summer, as the temperature of Lake Erie slowly climbs in advance of the annual lake stratification, Cleveland Water closely monitors the lake's water quality for any issues that might follow.

Understanding Turbidity and Why it Matters

Strong spring storms that churn Lake Erie waters and increase water runoff mix more sediment and other particulate matter into the lake water. The resulting murky water will measure higher in a water quality parameter called turbidity.

Protect Lake Erie by Protecting its Watershed

Our 1.5 million customers are part of the more than 12 million people who rely on Lake Erie as their source of drinking water. Clean water and a healthy Lake Erie is critical not only for our community to survive but for it to thrive as a region that leverages its assets to build economic, social and environmental well-being for all.
