The city of Naperville, through an investigation, has unearthed records showing that its inventory of lead water service lines is larger than previously expected.
Some records discovered as part of the probe reveal that lead water service lines were not banned in the city until 1960, resulting in the discovery of up to 2,000 additional lead water service lines, up from the list of 200 that originally remained. Previously, staff believed lead pipes were prohibited in 1930.
Darrell Blenniss, the city’s director for water utilities, said most of the impacted properties are in the Moser Highlands and Scots Plains subdivisions.
