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.

Please recycle right, dangerous things arrive at recycling centers daily.

It's important to recycle right by placing only the correct items in your recycling cart or bin. It's even more critical to not include dead things, bowling balls, ammunition or a LIVE CANNONBALL.

This answers a lot of plastic questions we get.

This answers a lot of plastic questions we get.

It's #WDIDW Wednesday, so what do I do with numbered plastic containers? The number is a resin code and doesn't tell if an item can be recycled in a curbside program. Instead, look at its shape. Learn more. www.cuyahogarecycles.org/plastic_bottles

It's #WDIDW Wednesday. So, what do I do with flower pots? Do not place them in your curbside recycling. Plan ahead and consider how you can reuse plastic flower pots or flats during the spring planting season or place them in the trash. Learn more. www.cuyahogarecycles.org/flower_pots

Update: Downtown Willoughby project is roughly 3 weeks ahead of schedule. Replaced water lines that were roughly 100 years old. New curbs and brickwork completed on one side. This project has been a great partnership with The City of Willoughby. Traffic pattern will shift to the other side now. This project improves water service to this wonderful and historic area.

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?
