Staying Hydrated in High Temperatures is Key

We welcome summer by celebrating our favorite time of the year outdoors with cookouts and picnics, vacations, and getting the chance to do some of our favorite outdoor activities like biking, swimming and gardening. But being in the sun all day can have its consequences if we don’t protect ourselves from sun burn or heat stroke. As a result, we find our days of fun in the sun ending with trips to the emergency room.

UPDATED - Discolored Water Notification

UPDATE - 6/13/17 12 pm

The discoloration that was affecting water in the vicinity of E. 152nd Street has been resolved. If you are still experiencing discoloration, run your tap for a few minutes until the water runs clear. If possible, use the lowest sink in your home for flushing (ex., a basement utility tub). Use cold water only! If this does not resolve the issue, please contact our 24-hr Emergency Service Line at 216-664-3060.

Cleveland Water Monitors Lake Erie with Two Innovative Buoys

Keeping our water safe is Cleveland Water’s top priority and one way we do this is by staying on top of challenges Lake Erie throws our way.

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.

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.
