Lead Service Line Replacement Projects

+Today, there is a growing awareness that some homes have lead in their water pipes, fixtures and plumbing. To reduce exposure to lead in drinking water, the City of Rochester has developed a lead service line replacement program with the intent to replace all lead services. Lead presents health concerns for people of all ages, particularly pregnant women, infants and young children. The surest way to protect against lead in water is to get the lead out altogether.

Current Lead Service Line Replacement Projects:

Our contractors will be replacing existing lead, lead lined and galvanized water services from the water main to the curb shut off valve with new polyethylene water service tubing.  

The locations for this work have been identified by selecting streets that contain water mains that have been previously cleaned and cement lined and that have an abundance of lead, lead lined, or galvanized water services. Work is expected to continue year round when weather permits and will ramp up during the peak construction season.  

Construction work is in progress on the following streets:
