If you live in an older property, you may have lead service lines that can cause harmful effects over time.
According to Denver Water, there are between 64,000 and 84,000 properties in their service area with lead water service lines. Homes that were constructed before the 1950s are more likely to feature this type of service line.
Denver Water has implemented a Lead Reduction Program that involves replacing lead water lines with copper lines over the next 15 years for every property in their service area. This project will be carried out at no cost to the property owner on the scheduled replacement date; if you decide to have the pipes replaced before your scheduled date, Denver Water will cover up to $3,800 of the project cost.
If you are interested in having your water service lines replaced as soon as possible to enjoy safer and healthier drinking water, our experts at Bell Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electrical can help you carry out the project safely and efficiently.
