    CleanWaterFest and Open House

    Be a part of our 2019 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.

    2019 National Walking Summit - Places for People

     

    The walking movement is changing— encountering opportunities one could not expect several years ago and which have increasingly influenced the work of the national walking movement. The national walking movement has always been informed by local work to create safer, more accessible, well-connected networks of mobility.

     

    There are no one-sized fits all solution--strategies that are employed to create safer walking environments must reflect the history, culture, and background of each community. With that in mind, America Walks has decided to embrace the opportunities brought on by these changes and redefine the 2019 National Walking Summit to focus on localized geographic-based convenings that will feature the unique characteristics of each place and will highlight the home-grown solutions and adaptations that are at work in communities.
