Each year Cleveland Water issues a Water Quality Report for our customers. This annual report, also called a Consumer Confidence Report, provides an overview of our water quality during the past year, including testing results and information.
Here at Cleveland Water, the health and well-being of our customers and employees is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus, and we’re working to safeguard the health of our community.
Customers in our northeast service area may still be experiencing discolored water. The water is safe to drink. We continue to flush hydrants in affected communities and anticipate that the issue will be resolved tomorrow. Customers experiencing discoloration should avoid doing laundry to prevent fabric staining.
Over the summer months, Cleveland Water staff have been closely watching as the waters of Lake Erie separate into distinct layers – a layer of warm water at the surface and a cold water layer at the bottom of the lake.
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.
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.
