Some residents in Denver's metro area have been receiving new water pitchers in the mail, courtesy of Denver Water. The agency serves around 1.5 million people in the region, and began its 15-year Lead Reduction Program at the end of July.
The agency delivers lead-free water, but lead can get into drinking water as it moves through customer-owned service lines and plumbing fixtures, officials said.
Denver Water is identifying which properties have a lead service line, and sending those residents information, along with a Brita water pitcher and filter that is certified to remove lead.
To protect customers from lead in drinking water, Denver Water raised the pH of the water in March to reduce corrosivity, and the agency will be replacing all customer-owned lead service lines over the next 15 years at no direct cost to the customer, officials said.
