Replace in-home plumbing fixtures
If you have plumbing fixtures, such as faucets that contain lead or leaded-brass, consider replacing them with lead-free fixtures.
Replace your lead service line
Replacing your lead service line will reduce lead in your drinking water. It will also help improve water quality throughout your home in comparison to point-of-use filters, which only remove lead at the tap where they have been installed.
In the past, EPCOR replaced our portion of lead services lines during the construction season (May to October). We prioritized replacement for homes with young children and pregnant women. We also prioritized homeowners who chose to
replace their portion of the line, as replacing only one section of a lead service line has been shown not to be as effective in reducing lead levels in the home and may result in temporarily increased lead levels.
As a result of the new Health Canada Guideline, EPCOR will be working with the City of Edmonton to develop a new lead service line replacement program as part of our Lead Mitigation Strategy. We will be providing more information and reaching out directly to customers with lead service lines in the coming months.
In the meantime, if you are considering replacing your lead service line, please contact our Lead Management Program Representative at
Water service for infill development, rezoning or subdivisions
When property is being redeveloped, property owners are generally responsible for upgrading the full water service line, from the main to the home or building, to current standards.
Residents or property developers involved in property redevelopment should contact the City of Edmonton at
(780) 496-5444 to confirm the water service line meets current standards.
