Historically, the water customers within the City of Westlake have been provided with service by
the Cleveland Water Division (CWD) through an agreement for direct service. Planned rate
increases and other contract changes from CWD have prompted the Westlake City Council to
pursue the evaluation of other options for water service. As a first step, a Phase 1 Water System
Study was completed by HNTB. The Phase 1 study focused on a preliminary assessment and cost
analysis of the water distribution system improvements necessary to enable the City of Westlake
to switch water service providers from CWD to Avon Lake Municipal Utilities (ALMU).

The Phase 2 Water System Study is aimed at determining the extent of new and upgraded
infrastructure necessary for the City of Westlake to provide municipal water service to its
customers from the water system owned and operated by ALMU. In order to achieve this, a
hydraulic model of the City of Westlake’s current water distribution network was developed using
the WaterCAD software by Bentley Systems, Inc. The hydraulic model was used to test a variety
of scenarios and determine the best and most cost effective means to provide water service to
Westlake customers for average day, maximum day, and peak hour demand while meeting the
considerations given in Section 1.3 of this report.
