How Lead & Copper
Get Into Drinking Water

Although lead service lines have never been found in our water system, MAWSS feels it is our duty to inform the community of the process in which lead can potentially affect drinking water.

Lead can potentially enter into drinking water through outdated lead water service lines, patching materials and old home plumbing and fixtures. The utilization of lead and lead patches in plumbing was ended in 1986. MAWSS consistently takes an inventory of the current lead status among homes in the area.

Water chemistry is controlled by detailed steps employing a consumable erosion inhibitor that covers the home’s pipes and keeps lead from escaping into drinking water. MAWSS started this program during the 1980s. MAWSS test results have been, and continue to be, reliably below the lead activity levels set up by ADEM.
