Lead is dangerous to human health, and lead service lines (LSLs) are a primary source of lead in drinking water in many communities. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requiring cities to identify LSLs to homes and submit the information to their state health departments by October 2024.
The City of Golden Valley is asking its utility customers to take a survey that will help create an inventory of all water service lines in its system. The survey will ask customers to provide contact information (name, address, phone number) and identify the material type of their water service line. If you are unable to do this, contact the City at 763-593-3962 to schedule an inspection to verify the type of your water service material. The City will reach out to anyone who does not take the survey or make an appointment.
To help people identify lead service lines in their homes, the EPA provides an online interactive guide called Protect Your Tap: A Quick Check For Lead that includes pictures, step-by-step directions, and additional resources.
