CITY OF LATHRUP VILLAGE
Water Service Line Material Survey
Link to Announcement
For the health and safety of our residents, the City of Lathrup Village is required to determine your water service line material. This aids in identifying if there is possible lead exposure in drinking water which may cause health risks. That is why the City of Lathrup Village is tracking where lead water service lines exist within our community.
We have beautiful historic homes here! We recognize that some homes were built up to 100 years ago. But this also means that our records are not always complete. We are asking our residents to help us to determine if your water service line is lead, copper or galvanized steel.
HOW THE SURVEY WORKS
There is a simple online tool created by the National Public Radio (NPR) that will guide you in determining if your water service line that connects to your water meter is lead, copper, or galvanized steel.
There are only a couple of steps and all you will needs is a coin and a magnet. To take a picture, a cellphone is recommended.
- Go online to Water Service Line Inquiry form at: https://arcg.is/1P5rPe
- Or you can use the QR Code
- Click on the link to the NPR tool at: https://apps.npr.org/find-lead-pipes-in-your-home/en/#intro
- Enter the information requested on the survey, add a picture, and click SUBMIT!
If you have a lead or galvanized water service, the City of Lathrup Village will be required to replace the water line at no cost to our residents.
If you are unable to perform this task, the City will be required to verify your water service material and will need to schedule a time to inspect your water meter.
By using the tool and sharing your information, you will be helping our Department of Public Services and for that we thank you!
