About Avon Lake Regional Water
Our mission: To provide the region with quality water services.
Avon Lake Regional Water has a rich history beginning in 1925, starting with water provision for 1,200 Avon Lake residents.
The initial investment of $390,000 (in 1925 dollars) included the cost of the land and the original water plant and administration buildings which were constructed a year later. Today, Avon Lake Regional Water is a $60,000,000 operation with water and wastewater treatment facilities.
