Many thanks to the suburban mayors and representatives for joining us!

This past Friday, we had the honor of hosting our suburban community mayors and representatives at Garrett A. Morgan Water Treatment Plant for our quarterly Suburban Water Council of Governments (COG) meeting. This quarter, members received updates on water rates, our Automated Meter Reading project and the Suburban Water Main Renewal Program.

Following the meeting, Interim Commissioner Alex Margevicius led members on a tour of the plant, beginning with the history of Cleveland’s water system and an explanation of our water treatment process.
