Traffic Alert - Cleveland Water to Close a Section of Lake Avenue

Cleveland Water Pipe Repair Crews will temporarily close Lake Avenue between West 115th and 116th Street on Wednesday morning to complete repairs to the street and driveway aprons that were damaged from a 12-inch water main break earlier this week.

Residents who live in the affected area will be allowed local access only while the repairs are being made. Repairs are expected to be completed and the street reopened to traffic on Thursday, July 20th.  

Detour signs will be posted.

Weekend Fun in the Community

Our Public Education and Outreach Team had quite an eventful weekend! We were at multiple community events – Waterloo Arts Festival, Bedford Heights Family Fun Day, Ward 5 Community Festival, South Euclid Rock the Block and Cleveland Metroparks Zoo’s KidsDays. We recently rolled out our new Cleveland Water Trivia game and it’s been a hit at all of our events. In addition, our Water Buggy was making all kinds of friends too –even furry ones.

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 sunburn or heat stroke. As a result, we find our days of fun in the sun ending with trips to the emergency room. That’s why we stress the importance of staying hydrated while you’re doing your favorite activities.  And guess what?

UPDATED - Discolored Water Notification

UPDATE - 6/13/17 12 p.m.

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.

Save Money on Filling Your Pool

Now that summer is once again upon us, you’re probably getting your pool ready as quickly as possible in order to stay cool. In case you didn’t already know, Cleveland Water allows customers to fill pools from a hydrant in order to help save money.

To fill your pool using a hydrant, you’ll need to obtain a hydrant permit by presenting the following items to our Permits and Sales Department:

     •  The address of the hydrant or the address of the dwelling closest to the hydrant,

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. Two of the biggest challenges we face in the summer months are potential Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and their related toxins, and hypoxic water (also known as Dead Zone water).
