The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued regulations requiring all public water supply systems to develop a water service line inventory of both water district-owned and customer-owned service lines. This includes information from home and business owners on the type of material their water service line and interior plumbing is made of. The collection of information, required by the EPA, is to help identify and eventually eliminate any Lead service lines or interior plumbing. Consolidated Water District #1 must submit this inventory to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) by October 6, 2024!
Consolidated water has NO record of Lead pipe ever being used in our distribution system. However, lead pipes, galvanized pipes and copper pipe with lead-based solder may have been used in your home or business.
The survey includes questions about the water service line and plumbing in your home and business. Please take the time to respond to the survey. If you are unsure of the type of materials in your home, the Water district staff can help identify these materials. Call our office to set up an appointment.
For help with step, click HERE and review how to idenify the different materials that pipes are made of and how you can identify yours.
Once you have identified what metal your water pipes are that are coming into the house it’s time to take the survey. This should just take you a few minutes. Click HERE to take the survey.
