Water Regulations

The health of our customers and community is of vital importance to us. Cleveland Water works hard to ensure that our customers receive the highest quality water at all times.

Drinking water in the United States is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). To ensure your tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations limiting the amount of certain contaminants in your water. The Partnership for Safe Drinking Water (Partnership) is a voluntary effort between the EPA and 300 drinking water utilities across the United States.

As a member of the Partnership, Cleveland Water holds itself to higher water quality standards than those required by the EPA. We perform self-assessments of our water treatment operations, identify performance limiting factors, and take corrective actions to improve water quality.  We have completed the required self-assessment and optimization programs at each of our four water treatment plants. This large effort ensures that our customers receive great-tasting water with a higher degree of protection.
