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.
Since the start of 2019, the temperature of the lake water coming into Cleveland Water’s Garrett Morgan Treatment Plant has stayed below 39.2°F (4°C). This is the magic number that signals the lake’s surface can now start to freeze.
43.6 degrees Fahrenheit is the official temperature for Lake Erie offshore of Cleveland as of today, November 28. While that's still a good bit above freezing, as winter progresses and the lake temperature continues to drop we're on the lookout for ice formation.
