Welcome to the City of Akron Water Supply Bureau


 

 


A Note to City of Akron Water Customers about the Coronavirus State of Emergency

Serving you is the City of Akron Water’s top priority. We are a 24/7 operation, and always will be — even in times of uncertainty such as these. Here are some things we want you to know about how we are supporting our customers during the pandemic.

We are significantly reducing home entries and taking extra precautions.

Only in a very limited number of situations will there be a need for Akron Water employees to enter a customer’s home to maintain a water meter.  When entering, Akron Water staff will wear rubber gloves and special protective gear. You can assist by maintaining separation from our employees to reinforce social distancing practices.

We are here to help.

We have a variety of options to make payments and manage your account, including online bill payment; payment by mail, credit card, or debit card; and automatic bank draft. We encourage you to use our online digital tools and automated phone options. www.akronohio.gov/ubo or (330) 375-2554.

We will continue to respond to emergencies.

Our employees are still hard at work. If you lose water service or have an emergency, you can report water emergencies to us by calling us at (330) 375-2420 or www.akronohio.gov/311

We will continue to safeguard your tap water from Covid-19.

One of the Akron Water Treatment Plants main functions is to remove pathogens, including viruses through disinfection.  Coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, is a type of virus that is particularly susceptible to disinfection. Standard treatment and disinfectant processes used by Akron Water and most other water treatment plants are expected to be effective.

More information on Coronavirus and Drinking water can be found in the links from the EPA and CDC below.

As circumstances surrounding the pandemic change, we are evaluating the measures we have put in place and carefully weighing further steps. We are coordinating our response with federal, state, and local officials and following the guidance of Ohio EPA, the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies.
