Our raw water intakes sit far out into the lake away from pollution sources, but no raw and untreated lake water is safe to drink without some level of treatment – even when that water comes from a great source like Lake Erie.

A report released earlier today raised questions about the levels of Chromium-6 in our drinking water. We want to assure all of our customers that your safety continues to be our top priority. Cleveland Water meets and exceeds all State and Federal drinking water standards as established by the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA), including regulations related to Chromium.
