If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead enters drinking water primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. We are committed to providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in residential plumbing. If you’re concerned that your plumbing may be causing elevated lead and copper levels, contact us at 801.446.2000 for more information. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is also available from EPA at 1-800-426-4791, or www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
