Lead Service Line Inventory

*Please click on the following link to complete the JSD: 

Customer Water Line Material Identification Survey.*

In 1988 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated a Lead Ban on all Water service lines. The NC Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) has imposed and required all NC public water systems to perform Lead & Copper testing over the past 20 years.

As part of the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) published December 16, 2021, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that all community water systems (CWS) and non-transient non-community (NTNC) water systems develop an inventory of all service line connections, both system-owned and customer-owned. The inventory must identify the potential presence of lead within each service line connection.

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