A full lead service line replacement (LSLR) involves the elimination of all lead pipes between the water main and the water meter in your house. The entire lead service line is replaced with a copper service line.
Lead can enter drinking water from lead pipes or lead-based solder on water pipes. This can occur when pipes containing lead corrode, especially where the water is acidic or has low mineral content. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder.
EPA’s revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule require the submittal of drinking water service inventories by October 16, 2024.
