The low temperatures and cold winds of winter can make your water pipes susceptible to freezing, especially ones located in unheated or exterior areas of your home. And if a frozen pipes bursts, it can cause flooding and serious damage.
Winter weather will be here before you know it. And once temperatures drop, your water pipes and meter can be susceptible to freezing. Frozen pipes cause expensive, frustrating, and unnecessary damage.
As the Director of Public Utilities, I have the pleasure of overseeing the publicly owned and operated utilities in the City of Cleveland, including Cleveland Water. With the inevitable return of cold weather and snow, I wanted to take a moment to update our customers on how Cleveland Water is working to ensure a reliable supply of safe drinking water is available throughout the winter months.
