Besides providing quality drinking water when and where you need, another important job of our water distribution system is to provide fire protection.
Cleveland Water supplies water to nearly 75,000 fire hydrants across the 80 communities we serve. Help us and local firefighters by keeping hydrants clear of snow.
During a heatwave, some residents may open hydrants in an effort to beat the heat. While we agree that Cleveland Water is cool and refreshing, opening hydrants can be dangerous.
In 2018, Cleveland Water built partnerships with other city departments and community organizations to leverage technology and creativity in our infrastructure.
Cleveland Water maintains and supplies water to approximately 75,000 fire hydrants in our service area. To ensure they’re all functioning properly, we rely on the annual hydrant flushing efforts of local fire departments.
