Lead Service Line Inventory

In an effort to significantly lower the risk of exposure to lead and copper in our nation’s drinking water, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is requiring all Water Districts to perform a Lead Service Line Inventory, and provide the results to the EPA.

As per the above diagram, two parts of the Service Line need to be assessed:

  1.  Utility-Owned:  the line that runs from our water main to your water meter
  2.  Customer-Owned:  the line that runs from the water meter to your home

North City Water District has never used lead in our service lines from the main to the meter, and King County banned the use of lead service lines in the late 1960s. However, if your home was built before 1970, it could have lead pipe in the customer-owned section of line between the water meter (which is typically located at the property boundary) and your home.

This is where we need your help.

We would like to ask your assistance in helping us gather critical information using the below form, as the first step in establishing our District’s Lead Service Line Inventory for the EPA. There are three easy ways to take this survey:

Option 1: use the Online Survey (link provided below).

Option 2: download the Interactive Survey and fill it out electronically. The fields in this PDF version are interactive — you can type directly into each field, save the document, then attach it to an email (along with any photo attachments you might have) to leadservicelines@northcitywater.org

Option 3: download the Printable Survey, print it out, fill it out by hand, then drop it off at our office, or send it to us by postal mail to North City Water District – 1519 NE 177th Street, Shoreline, WA 98155.
