Get the lead out during Drinking Water Week

Drinking Water Week continues! Today we are encouraging people to look for and replace lead-based water pipes and plumbing in their homes.

Being exposed to lead can cause health problems for anyone but especially for pregnant women, babies and children.

Lead is sometimes present in pipes connecting older homes to the water system or in fixtures and home plumbing. Talk to a licensed plumber to help you find and replace lead service lines and other lead-based materials in your home.

Learn more at our Lead in Water webpage.
