Customer Lead and Copper Survey
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has mandated Water Utility Companies to test some homes for lead and copper in the water. While these contaminants are not in the source water, lead and copper contaminants can enter through corrosion of older household plumbing materials. Customer participation is appreciated to help the water system comply with government regulations and monitor the water quality. In order for the water system to be able to comply with the EPA’s requirements, it is also required under the drinking water act to send surveys to all customers asking that they complete and return the survey form below.
1983‐1989: Why this time frame?
The EPA focuses on these years because of the Lead and Copper Rule in the Code of Federal Regulations. However, if we do not have enough homes to inspect between 1983 and 1989, you may be contacted. If you don't know your home's age, check your electrical control panel or other documents.
Note: Your water is safe to drink and meets EPA drinking water standards without filtering.
Note: Softening is a matter of customer preference, not safety.
