Protect Your Home This Winter from Costly Repairs

With winter just around the corner, take these simple steps to keep your water pipes and meter from freezing when the temperatures drop.

Disconnect and drain outdoor hoses.
Detaching the hose allows water to drain from the pipe. Otherwise, a single hard, overnight freeze can burst either the faucet or the pipe it’s connected to.

Cleveland Water Hosts OAWWA Conference

The 77th annual Ohio Section American Water Works Association conference was held in our great city last week. Over 800 representatives from different parts of Ohio were in town to take part in this conference; and the timing could not have been any better. With the threat of algae blooms lurking closer to Cleveland, this issue was a major topic of discussion. The conference provided a great opportunity for some of the best and brightest water industry experts to gather and share ideas on the water treatment and the future of the water treatment process.
