"Get The Lead Out" Project

Conducting the Water Service Line Inventory

For most homes and buildings built after 1978, the presence of lead is less prevalent. However, there is still a chance that lead material could have been used in residential service lines following this date. For this reason, it is important for all property owners in the community to conduct their own on-site inspection and determine what material type their water service line is made of - lead, copper, galvanized steel, or plastic.


To complete the EPA’s required service line inventory, the City of Payette will need property owners’ assistance with verifying service line material. Through basic tests or observation, property owners can provide with what type of material their service line is made of – lead, copper, galvanized steel, or plastic. Follow these basic steps provided to determine what your service line material is and use the online self-reporting tool to share your findings with

the city.
