2016 Water Quality Report Now Available

We are proud to announce Cleveland Water’s 2016 Water Quality Report is now available. This annual report provides an overview of our water quality during the past year, including testing results and information.

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 at the turn of a tap any hour of the day.

What You Need to Know About Lead in Water

Cleveland Water takes multiple steps to make sure the water you drink is safe from a variety of potential contaminants, including lead. We use a chemical called orthophosphate in our treatment process that has proven effective at reducing the risks of lead in drinking water. We also recognize that after treatment, the best thing we can do is empower our customers with information.

Happy Global Day of the Engineer!

Every day engineers apply principles of science, math and technology to advance the lives of millions of people around the world. At Cleveland Water, our engineering section has many responsibilities aimed at providing a reliable supply of safe, quality drinking water as efficiently and effectively as possible.

The Facts About Fluoride

We began feeding fluoride into drinking water in 1956, but an Ohio law governing fluoridation (the process of adding fluoride to our drinking water) in public water supplies was enacted in the early 1970s to meet public health needs.

Cleveland Fire is Now Accepting Applicants for New Firefighters

Fire needs three things in order to burn – oxygen, heat and fuel – and water makes it hard for the fuel to be in contact with the air. So, water helps to prevent combustion and thus, fire. That means we have a few friends at our local fire departments we need to support; and, more than 75,000 fire hydrants throughout out service area to which we need to keep the water, and water pressure, flowing!

The Science Behind Water Quality

Delivering safe, quality drinking water to our customers is important. It takes a lot of science and a lot of engineering – from chemistry, biology and freshwater ecology to civil, sanitary and electrical engineering. Understanding laws, regulations, and industry standards are also critical to ensuring the water we provide our customers is safe.

What You Can Expect from the Water Review Board

The purpose of the Water Review Board is to provide a neutral forum to settle disputes concerning your water service. The Board is not an extension of the collections process. Instead, the Water Review Board acts as an objective third party in order to make unbiased decisions about your dispute based on the facts presented in each case.

Cleveland Water Submits HB512 Lead Mapping Requirements

This week, Cleveland Water submitted our lead cityside connection map and supporting documentation in accordance with Ohio House Bill 512 (HB512). The bill requires community water systems to identify and map areas known or likely to contain lead service lines. The maps will also assist Ohio EPA with ensuring proper lead and copper sampling is conducted in areas of lead service lines and proper notifications are made to customers.
