Proper hydration is absolutely essential for our health. Our bodies are about 60% water and the water we drink regulates body temperature and blood pressure, keeps muscles and joints moving, moves waste out of the body, and aids in digestion.
Summer is here and the warmer weather often means increased water use for our customers. Since your water bill is based directly on your usage, more water means a higher bill. But we've got some tips to help you conserve water and save money.
Over the summer months, Cleveland Water staff have been closely watching as the waters of Lake Erie separate into distinct layers – a layer of warm water at the surface and a cold water layer at the bottom of the lake.
The Cleveland Water system is designed with numerous layers of protection to help ensure only clean, safe drinking water reaches your tap. These advantages start with the location of where we draw water in from Lake Erie, extend to our four treatment plants, and continue throughout our delivery system.
Last week while monitoring sensors on Cleveland Water’s two buoys in Lake Erie, our staff noticed a downwelling event. Water temperature shifts like this can result in adjustments to the treatment process at our plants in order to maintain the quality and consistency of the water coming from your tap.
