Lead in drinking water
There are no measurable levels of lead in drinking water when it leaves our water treatment plants. But lead may be found in tap water for those homes with lead pipes or if there are lead plumbing components or fixtures inside your home.
More than 98% of homes in Edmonton have water lines made of other materials like copper, iron or plastic. About 4,400 homes built before 1960 still have lead service lines, as it was a material available to homebuilders at that time. With our
Lead Management Program, we're working with homeowners to remove lead service lines.
