At Cleveland Water, we know our drinking water is essential to the quality of life of more than 1.4 million people in 80 communities. That’s why we are committed to providing our customers with safe, high-quality, drinking water that is available at the turn of a tap any hour of the day.

Cleveland Water Billing Made Simple

New monthly bills will make budgeting easier, help customers track usage and detect leaks sooner.

Beginning in January 2017, Cleveland Water will be transitioning our accounts from quarterly to monthly billing to help customers better manage their household budget, track their water usage and detect possible leaks sooner. Once the transition is completed, water meters will be read monthly, and all consumption and other related charges will be based on a monthly rate.
