CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District posted a public advisory Wednesday at Edgewater Beach.  The advisory was posted as a result of a combined sewer overflow (CSO) event at Edgewater, which discharged raw sewage into Lake Erie during Tuesday’s heavy rain event.

Visitors – particularly children, the elderly and those in ill health – are advised to avoid contact with the water and debris.

“Last night’s overflow at Edgewater is yet another example of why we need to continue to be aggressive in investing in our sewer infrastructure, particularly if want to continue to capitalize on the good work of the Cleveland Metroparks and those who are developing along the lakefront,” said Julius Ciaccia, Sewer District Executive Director.

“Otherwise, to ignore the problems, like combined sewer overflows, stormwater run-off, failing septic systems, and illicit connections of sanitary sewage to storm sewers, that plague our local waterways would be irresponsible, and would squander the past investments made to keep our Great Lake great.”
