Disturbing Lead Service Lines
Field work that cuts, bends, or reshapes the service line can release lead. Affected households should be notified by anyone doing work near the home’s service line.
Construction activities exposing lead service lines (LSLs) can disturb the pipe, and other construction activities can affect water quality. Households impacted by construction should be notified that construction could impact water quality, including the possible release of lead in the drinking water.
