Infrastructure Projects

Infrastructure Projects

Because you count on us for your water needs, we have invested more than $1.6 billion over the past 30 years to modernize our treatment plants and distribution system.


Cleveland Water maintains and restores our treatment plants and distribution system through our Capital Improvement Program (CIP). Cleveland Water uses the CIP to identify its infrastructure needs, prioritize projects, and schedule them for funding and implementation through a multi-year plan.

Plant Enhancement Program

Past CIP Projects include Cleveland Water’s Plant Enhancement Program (PEP). The PEP was a $750-million, 15-year effort to modernize and rebuild our four water treatment plants. As a result of the PEP, Cleveland Water has four state-of-the-art treatment plants to ensure safe water is available throughout our service area.

Continued Maintenance of Towers, Tanks, and Pipes

There is more to providing dependable water service than just being able to produce clean, safe, and healthy drinking water at our treatment plants. Therefore, our CIP includes funding for other critical projects focused on the 22  water towers and tanks and more than 5,200 miles of underground pipes necessary to deliver water to over 420,000 accountholders.  With the completion of the PEP, Cleveland Water will begin investing even more capital money in these important assets.
