Lead Service Line Inventory


Lead Service Line Inventory Information
While Mound treats and tests water to make sure that it is lead-free when it leaves the well houses and travels through the water mains, some older homes (built prior to 1986) in our community may have lead in service lines, household plumbing materials and faucets.

Lead presents health concerns for people of all ages, particularly pregnant women, infants and young children. Ultimately, the best way to protect your household is by removing all potential sources of lead in your water service line and home. 

Understanding the rule: All Public Water Systems must complete and submit to the state a lead service line inventory by October 16, 2024.

Lead and Copper Rule Revision
As required under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA)  Lead Copper Rule Revision (LCRR), the City of Mound is in the process of a system-wide assessment to identify, document and develop a plan to subsequently address any lead pipes in its system – including residential homes and businesses.

As part of the assessment, several hundred property owners will receive letters from the City of Mound requesting they conduct a simple water pipe test for lead and complete an online survey to log the test results. This is one of several steps the city is taking to assess, identify and document lead pipes in its system.
