On January 15, 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) that went into effect on December 16, 2021. You are served by a Group A water system, and all Group A systems are required to follow the LCRR. 

What does this mean for you? We need to develop and submit a Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) by October 16, 2024; while continuing to comply with the prior version of the Lead and Copper Rule. This requires dedicated effort to review historic records and determine appropriate identification methods to obtain both private and utility owned service line information.

Next you will find descriptions that will help you understand and answer the remaining questions:

The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines “lead service line” as a portion of pipe that is made of lead, which connects the water main to the building inlet. A lead service line may be owned by the water system, by the property owner, or both. 

If your service line is galvanized iron/steel and ever WAS or currently IS downstream of any lead service line OR a service line made of an unknown material, it is considered to be a lead service line or a “galvanized requiring replacement” (GRR) line.  

If the only lead piping serving the home is a lead gooseneck, pigtail, or connector, and is NOT a galvanized service line that is considered a lead service line, then the service line is not a lead service line.
