Martinsville Utilities and Water Resources are committed to delivering the highest quality drinking water. To uphold this commitment, they need the community's assistance in identifying potential lead sources within home plumbing.
Water Resources is inspecting all 120 miles of piping throughout the city but needs homeowners' and renter’s help identifying water service line pipe materials that led into their homes.
The service line is where drinking water enters homes through a pipe that connects the water meter and is typically located in a home's basement or utility closet. The department is asking that all customers self-report their service line materials.
This initiative aligns with the EPA's Lead and Copper Rule Revision, ensuring compliance and transparency. Initial tests confirmed lead absence leaving the treatment facility.
