2/11/13 NEORSD P.U.P.

Let's talk dirty for a moment: P.U.P.

There are more than 90,000 dogs in Cuyahoga County. If each dog poops twice a day, that could be more than 45 tons of doggie droppings every day! That's a lot of bacteria, and when it rains, that groundwater and surface runoff carries that bacteria to local waterways. Yuck.

Cleaning up after your dog is a simple step you can take help keep my watershed clean and waterways free of harmful bacteria.

Here at the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, we take the environment seriously.  Please help us keep things clean. + Take a look at our P.U.P program to see how you can do your part.

More information about the program is available online at  Our public service announcement is online here

Looking up at Lake Erie? Mackenzie will soon cross under the lake bed

Mackenzie's knocking on Lake Erie's door.

The tunnel boring machine that is digging our Euclid Creek Tunnel project—an 18,000-foot journey 200 feet under Cleveland's east side—is named Mackenzie. And in a few short weeks, the bed of Lake Erie will be 160 feet above her head.

The photo above marks the GPS-located position of the tunnel boring machine as of Monday. Moving from west to east (or left to right in the image) at a pace of 80 feet per day, Mackenzie should begin crossing under the lake bed within the next few weeks. The total length of the Euclid Creek Tunnel that will burrow beneath Lake Erie will be about 3,000 feet.
