Lead is a naturally occuring metal that can be present in drinking water.


Access to safe and clean drinking water is fundamental to our well-being, yet concerns about the presence of lead in drinking water have been a recurring issue. Lead contamination in drinking water can have serious health implications, particularly for infants, young children, and pregnant women. It's crucial to be informed and proactive when it comes to ensuring the purity of your tap water. 

JVWCD is committed to providing safe and reliable drinking water. We regularly test for lead in our water system and to date it has always been within acceptable limits. However, lead can get into water as it sits in or passes through the internal plumbing or fixtures of your home or business depending on the materials used and year of construction. Older buildings are more likely to have plumbing systems that contain lead. 

Lead Service Line Inventory

Typically, JVWCD is responsible for the infrastructure from the water main to the water meter, and the homeowner is responsible for everything from the meter into their home. However, because we need to collect information about both the public and private sides, we will need your help gathering the information for this database. If your home was built prior to 1989, please complete the survey below to help identify your residence service line.
