Replacement of the lead pipe that delivers water to your home is the best way to reduce your exposure to lead in drinking water.

Water service pipes are owned by the City and by the homeowner:

  1. The part that the City owns runs from the watermain on the street to the property line.
  2. The part that the homeowner owns runs from the property line into the home.

See a water service diagram to learn more.

Residents who commit to replacing their portion of the pipe can apply to have the City replace its side on a priority basis.
