LEAD SERVICE LINE MAPPING AND INSPECTIONS
The Munroe Falls Water Department along with RCAP (Rural Community Assistance Partnership), in accordance with the Ohio EPA's Lead Service Line Mapping requirement, is asking residents to take part in helping us determine the service line and plumbing materials currently in use at residences in Munroe Falls. We would like you to take a short survey to tell us about the plumbing in your home and what materials are in use. If you're not sure, there are scratch test instructions to guide you.
RCAP and the City will be contacting residents and making on-site visits beginning in July to determine service line materials. In doing so, it may be necessary to dig down to the service line at some homes to visually examine the water line. Any disturbances to lawns required to make these inspections will be fully restored once completed.

The Munroe Falls Water Department prepares an annual report to provide information to you, the consumer, on the quality of your drinking water. This report is prepared and sent to all consumers no later than June 1st annually. This report includes general health information, water quality test results from the prior year, and how to participate in decisions concerning your drinking water and water system contacts.
If you have additional questions or would like this report sent directly to you, please contact the Director of Public Works, Jim Bowery at 330-688-7491.
The City of Munroe Falls purchases drinking water from the City of Cuyahoga Falls. The Cuyahoga Falls water treatment plant, which is located at 2028 Munroe Falls Avenue, uses well water as a source. The well field consists of 18 wells located in Water Works Park on the south bank of the Cuyahoga River. This well field is the source for raw water to the water treatment plant. The water provided to you is ’hard’ water and therefore comes with the challenges presented by ’hard’ water. Many residents opt to install water softeners and/or filtration systems or devices to improve the water taste/texture.
You can find more information on the Water Department page of this website. Or click here to go there now.

- What is a "Mayor's Court"?
A mayor’s court is a local-level court created in some municipalities that hears cases about traffic violations, minor misdemeanors, and other offenses that cannot result in jail time, and they only operate in Ohio and Louisiana. In Ohio, the presiding officer is a magistrate (not a judge) appointed by the mayor, or City Council.

Call the Police Clerk, who is also the Mayor's Court Clerk at 330-688-7494.
