Common Water Issues in Cleveland

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Cleveland's main source of water is Lake Erie. Water is drawn from Lake Erie by four intakes, which are located a considerable distance from the shore in order to help protect water from possible contamination. After water is pumped, it is treated at one of four nearby treatment plants before being distributed to residents across a huge 640-square-mile area using a system that includes 5,200 miles of underground pipes, 22 water towers and tanks, and 11 pump stations.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Hard water is caused primarily by dissolved calcium and other minerals that are absorbed as water travels from its source to be treated. Hard water can translate into a variety of household issues, including:

  • Stiff and scratchy laundry and linens
  • Underperforming appliances
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Cloudy glassware

Limescale Buildup

Over time, hard water can create a chalky buildup on your faucets, showerheads, and other household appliances. This white scale buildup is both unsightly and tough to clean, and can even cause serious plumbing issues if left untreated.

Stains or Colored Water

Organic material or metals can become absorbed into the water system, creating a slight discoloration of your tap water. While not typically harmful to your health, colored water can eventually cause stains or discoloration of your laundry and appliances.
