Time to Build: Investing in Our Infrastructure

Infrastructure Week is a national week of events, media coverage, and education and advocacy efforts, set to shine a spotlight on infrastructure as a critical issue that affects everyone. This year’s Infrastructure Week theme is Time to Build – “urging leaders and citizens to highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure and encourage policymakers to invest in the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.”

Meet Cleveland Water’s Nottingham Plant Manager Deborah Hanby

At Cleveland Water, we take pride in serving you safe, quality water. That’s why this year’s Drinking Water Week theme “Know It, Love It,” fits perfectly with what we do, the communities we serve, the outstanding work of our employees and the great-tasting water we provide to our customers.

Our Water Treatment Plant Operators are a critical component of our treatment process and there is one employee who we’d like to highlight. This month, we shine a spotlight on Deborah Hanby, Cleveland Water’s Nottingham Plant Manager.

What Goes Into Your Drinking Water?

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.

Why Safety Matters

At Cleveland Water we know there’s “no business without safety,” because we know a safe and healthy work environment creates peace of mind and helps to make sure we all go home to our loved ones at the end of the day. But we also know that safety helps us control costs and keep reasonable rates for customers. Without it, critical funds must be diverted from daily operations to pay for damage and injuries. No matter who we are or what we do, safety matters.

Harvest For Hunger contributions doubled at 2017 DPU Race to End Hunger

Each year, Cleveland Water employees participate in the City of Cleveland’s Harvest For Hunger campaign. It’s a great way for us to collectively give back to the communities we serve but it also helps bring us together with our colleagues. This year our main event was so successful, we more than doubled the contributions raised in previous years at the event.

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.
