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.
Each year Cleveland Water issues a Water Quality Report for our customers. This annual report, also called a Consumer Confidence Report, provides a review of our water quality during the past year, including testing results and information.
Cleveland Water takes great pride in delivering high-quality drinking water to your house. Homeowners also play an important role in maintaining drinking water quality all the way to the glass. Properly maintaining your water heater is one of the best ways you can maintain that quality.
Several days ago we told you that Lake Erie’s bottom water temperatures had reached below the magic number of 39.2°F, meaning the surface could freeze as long as the air temperature above the lake stayed below freezing.
We know you work hard for your money so we want to be accountable to our customers for every dollar we spend.
Cleveland Water’s rates allow us to make necessary and critical improvements to guarantee our customers a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water. We make these improvements through our Capital Improvement Program (CIP).
Knowing how you use water in your home every day is an essential step in saving water and therefore costs. Equally important is knowing what happens to your money when you pay your water bill every month.
