As we all continue to comply with Governor Mike DeWine's by stay-at-home order to help stop the spread of this highly contagious virus, here is a snapshot of the announcements I've made this week:

Cleveland Water customers who have recently experienced disconnection should contact Cleveland Water at 216-664-3130 to discuss options for the restoration of service. CPP customers who have recently experienced disconnection should call 216-664-4600 to discuss options for the restoration of service.
