TROY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Troy is asking residents to take an online survey to identify lead service lines at privately-owned homes and properties. Troy’s water mains do not contain lead, the water service line running from the water main to your home may be made of lead, especially if your house was built before 1940. The survey and instructions are available at www.troyny.gov/lead
Troy regularly tests for lead in its drinking water. Lead levels in the water from the Tomhannock Reservoir are non-detectable by current testing standards, and there is no measurable increase when water flows from the Tomhannock Reservoir to the water treatment facility. Nor is there an increased lead level in the water flowing in the mains running from the facility and beneath the streets.
