The water in my shower has been way too hot and my apartment manager has been unresponsive. The water heater is installed in my apartment. I don't share this with other units. Is there a way I can lower the temperature on my water heater on my own?

Should be a thermostat dial on it. You can just turn it down a little at a time till it's the temp you want. Bear in mind it will take a long time for it to cool off after each adjustment.

The temperature should not be over 120 deg.
Sometimes that knob is under a metal cover at the bottom of the unit.
Just takes a Phillips screw driver to remove it.
Most heaters have a mark where the suggest position would be.
