CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - You may notice an odd tint to the Cuyahoga River, but the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District say’s don’t worry!

On Tuesday, the NEORSD will be conducting testing using dye that is completely safe for the environment in the river for a current project.

Sewer district officials say the colorful dye, which will show how where sewer water near West 3rd Street flows into the Cuyahoga River, may be visible in the water nearby.
