50 years of people, programs, and progress
Protecting public health and water resources for five decades
Cleaner water. Safe recreation. A better future. All because our customers have trusted us for 50 years.
The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District was established in 1972, and since then has been maintaining, improving, and expanding a system that protects more than a million Northeast Ohioans every single day. What began with a burning river has become a comeback story that’s still being written thanks to you.
Our work is wastewater treatment and stormwater management. It doesn’t get attention. It’s rarely realized beyond the bills you pay each month. When it’s functioning, it’s easy to take for granted. Good decisions, smart investment, and innovation have protected our environment because that’s what you should expect. It’s just what we do, and have done for 50 years.
During 2022, we’ll continue to tell the stories of our people, programs, and progress, highlighting the impact our work has had on our residents and our region.
