Northeast Ohio winters can cause quite a few headaches, including water main breaks. Outside of winter, we average 3 to 5 main breaks a day. During the winter, that average increases to 5 to 7 breaks daily and even more if we experience an extreme cold spell.
Northeast Ohio winters are known to cause quite a few headaches, including water main breaks. When temperatures drop below freezing and stay there for an extended period of time, customers are likely to see an increase in breaks.
Notice is hereby given that the Suburban Water Council of Governments (COG) will hold an in person COG meeting on the 8th day of October 2021 at 9:30 a.m. at the Brecksville Community Center, 1 Community Drive, Brecksville, OH 44141.
Cleveland Water has awarded over $6 million to seven suburban service communities for 11 water main replacement projects. These awards are part of our $26 million annual capital investment in buried infrastructure.
In 1850, at the behest of Mayor William Case, Cleveland City Council appointed a committee to address the issue of providing a sufficient supply of “pure water” for the city’s growing population. At the time, all of Cleveland’s drinking water came from springs, wells, canals, and the Cuyahoga River.
