MAWSS’ mission to provide the healthiest and safest drinking water starts with providing our community with transparent and current information. We want consumers to stay informed on our progress in the community with updates. We are committed to protecting our local water resources for current and future generations.
Although lead service lines have never been found in our water system, MAWSS feels it is our duty to inform the community of the process in which lead can potentially affect drinking water.
Lead can potentially enter into drinking water through outdated lead water service lines, patching materials and old home plumbing and fixtures. The utilization of lead and lead patches in plumbing was ended in 1986. MAWSS consistently takes an inventory of the current lead status among homes in the area.
