Always be safe.

This happened late afternoon June 18th...
On Thursday, a 12 year old local boy was playing and wading in the Chagrin River near the Eagle Road bridge. Noticing an odd object among the rocks in the water, he investigated a little bit further. Surprisingly enough, what he discovered was an old, yet still very much active, military grade artillery shell. The curious boy picked up the 20 pound shell and carried it through the river and back to a residence on Trailard Drive. Once back at home, his mother had an opportunity to look at the "discovery". Thankfully, she had the wherewithal to contact our police department for assistance. Officers responded to the area, and after a brief investigation contacted our partners with the Lake County Bomb Unit. Bomb techs responded and we set up a perimeter for them to safely remove the ordnance. When all was said and done, the shell was placed into an explosive containment unit and taken to another location for safe disposal. The family was happy, and thankfully nobody was injured during the incident. It is unknown at this time how the shell found it's place in the Chagrin River. Thank you again to the officers working with the Lake County Bomb Unit - dangerous assignment. Now that it's all over - Our public safety / public service announcement is this...If you come across something that you think may be an explosive device (a bomb, shell, or mortar for example):
*do not touch it.
*leave the item where it is - even if it looks old and rusty, it may still contain explosives and is therefore potentially dangerous.
*contact your local law enforcement and/or fire department for further assistance.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone - and Happy Father's Day to all.

Science vs. Erosion

A description of the wall design and some of the science behind stopping erosion. The wall has natural grasses growing now and the Army Corp planted bushes and trees to help hold the soil from the wind and water. These natural solutions will help protect the Raw Water Station for a long time.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for revetment wall completion.

Ribbon Cutting ceremony for the completed construction of the 600-foot revetment wall along the Lake Erie shoreline that will protect the Lake County Raw Water Pump station.

The bluff along Lake Erie is highly erosive due to strong ice and wave action, eroding approximately 1.8 feet per year. Projecting the pump station is essential because it provides approximately 40,000 Lake County residents with clean drinking water.

I have to thank the Lake County Department of Utilities, especially Martha, Joel, Rick and Mike, who are helping me find my water shut off. Selling your property can be a real headache, and I just want to let them know that I am so grateful for their help.
Will there be a paper recycling this year?
Is the yard waste disposal open yet off Hardy Road?
Can you likewise comment on your utility services?
I heard about flushable wipe and did not break down in sewer by news. Do your sewer have problem with flushable wipe?
Looking for information on the water line project on River Road in Willoughby Hills. Can't seem to find any on the website or elsewhere ~
Has the water been turned back on for Rogers/ Ridgeview to Twin Lakes Dr in Wickliffe? Is there a boil alert?
Thanks for fixing are water problems today!!! We appreciate you!!!
We had a line break here in Madison two nights ago and they gave us a case of water and a Pur water filter. I have long been a sworn Aquafina ONLY fan but water through that filter tastes the same once the chlorine is removed!! If you gave everyone in the county one bottled water sales here would be all but gone!!
What sort of bacteria is it? How did this happen? Obviously you guys detected the bacteria somehow, which means you know what it is. Care to share details? I agree with the majority here, you guys are being very vague.
Is there an estimate for how long the water will be out on Delaware St in Wickliffe?
I'm unable to login to your website to set up autopay/make payments.....I've tried on the phone with internet, on data only, Laptop, etc...Are there issues going on?
