Water Service Lines Inventory Information
| Please complete the brief survey to assist in
identifying any lead or galvanized water lines on your
(Use your smartphone's camera to scan the QR code on the left).
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulations on lead in drinking water are evolving. The EPA recently revised the 1991 Lead and Copper Rule with the Lead and Copper Rule Revision (LCRR). As part of the revision, GMWSS will be conducting a water service line inventory involving BOTH the customer-owned service line and the utility-owned side of the service line. We are asking our customers for help on their side of the meter. With customer assistance we can reduce the costs of the inventory.
Please conduct the brief survey and help keep everyone’s water rates affordable. As this inventory work progresses and provides valuable information, GMWSS will formulate a cost-effective plan for complying with the EPA’s LCRR and will work with each affected customer on an individual basis to discuss potential safeguards to protect their health.
