Cleveland Water Celebrates Drinking Water Week with Free Public Tours
Have you ever wonder what it takes to make clean drinking water? How does the water get from Lake Erie to your home? What chemicals are used to process water from start to finish? On May 12th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., these questions along with many others can be answered by our dedicated Cleveland Water employees, when you join us for our Drinking Water Open House at the Garrett A. Morgan Water Treatment Plant, 1245 West 45th Street, Cleveland, Ohio 44102.
Themed, “Protect the Source,” Cleveland’s Drinking Water Open House is not only a unique opportunity for our professionals and the communities we proudly serve to come together but also a chance to educate the public about our world’s most valuable natural resource and the importance of Cleveland Water’s role in ensuring our citizens have access to safe, quality and reliable drinking water.
For years, Cleveland Water has hosted this outreach informative celebration to recognize and emphasize the importance of water, the vital role water plays in our daily lives, how essential water is to the quality of life and is critical to the health of our community.
Our Morgan Water Treatment Plant, built in 1916, was originally named The Division Avenue Pumping and Filtration Plant. Additionally, the Morgan Plant was constructed on the site where the water system originated in 1856. Do you know who this treatment plant was renamed after? Come find the answer to this question and learn some more interesting facts about our Morgan Plant as you take a guided tour, try to win some prizes, learn about the quality of our water, and enjoy a day full of Cleveland Water festivities.
