Do you have young kids at home? Protect them from lead exposure by having your lead service line replaced FOR FREE!

If you have a lead service line, lead can dissolve into your drinking water as the pipes when water sits in them for more than a few hours. The exposure can lead to serious health issues and have an impact on the brain and other organs. Young children are most vulnerable to lead’s effects, which can negatively impact their growth and development.

Let’s work together to protect our children! Learn more at dcwater.com/lead

It’s National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week, and together, we can prevent lead exposure! Replacing lead service lines is important to your health because it helps remove sources of lead from your drinking water.
If you have a lead service line, lead can dissolve in water that sits in pipes for a few hours. The exposure can lead to serious health issues that can have an impact on the brain and other organs, especially in young kids.
Find out if your home has a lead service line at https://geo.dcwater.com/leadmap/ and email [email protected]
to learn about your replacement options.
