Lead Service Line Inventory
Please help us protect your health...
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently issued regulations requiring all public water supply (PWS) systems to develop a Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) of both water system owned and your privately owned service lines. Your PWS system must submit this inventory to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) by October 16, 2024.
Please take the time to respond to the city's inquiries as this will help determine if you or your family have a lead exposure risk. If you are unsure, please contact the water department for further assistance. The goal is to remove all lead-containing service lines to your home as piping containing lead can become a potential health risk in drinking water. Some homes (typically built before 1988 in Kansas) may have lead service lines on the customer's property that connect to your water system’s main lines. Young children, infants, and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead in drinking water and water used for formula because the physical and behavioral effects of lead occur at lower exposure levels in children than in adults.
Additional information on the Lead and Copper Rule and identifying lead pipes and plumbing can be found on the KDHE website or EPA websites:
