To comply with new revisions to the federal law called the Lead and Copper Rule, the City will be inspecting water service lines throughout the city. Crews will dig a 1-foot square hole in the front of your property; typically in the City right-of-way near the water meter serving your property. The City right-of-way is the area that contains roads, sidewalks, and above and below-ground utilities, such as power lines, fire hydrants, drainage ditches, sewer and water lines and your water meter. If needed, we will restore the topsoil. Our crews will take special care in locations with extensive landscaping or obstacles.
