SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2019 | #CleanWaterFest and Open House

Be a part of our 2018 open house as we celebrate the Cuyahoga River’s 50-year comeback story and the clean-water work that made it possible.


Literally thousands of guests show up on a fall Saturday every year to learn more about where their water goes and what they can do to keep our Great Lake great. This year’s theme celebrates note only our lake’s greatness, but the rebirth of our once-burning Cuyahoga River as well.

Our 2018 Clean Water Fest and open house is Saturday, September 21 in Cuyahoga Heights, a celebration of community and all things water as we open the doors of our Southerly treatment plant and our laboratory facilities for a day of education and entertainment.

It’s not too early to mark your calendars. From 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., guests can visit more than 60 exhibitor booths, meet our employees and local partners, tour our award-winning wastewater treatment plant and lab, sit in our trucks and operate our equipment, see live entertainment and so much more.

We will post event details and updates leading up to September. Stay tuned, or check out our 2018 highlights below.

About #RiverReborn

The entire year of 2019 is a celebration of 50 years of progress since the infamous 1969 Cuyahoga River fire. The crooked river’s comeback is an environmental success story and a testament to the commitment of organizations and communities that both brought it back to health and protect it for future generations.

You can learn more about the rebirth story on our River Reborn media hub, as well as on Twitter using @neorsd and #RiverReborn.
