T&E Discusses Residential Lead Pipe Issues

The Transportation, Infrastructure, Energy and Environment Committee recently held a discussion of residential lead pipe issues. Most of the news is good, especially as WSSC reminded us that there are no lead pipes in the public water system. As an extra precaution, WSSC adds a corrosion inhibitor to its water. It is possible that private property -- older homes in particular -- could still have lead pipes or solder. If you are concerned about your water quality, call WSSC at 301-206-7575 for a lead testing kit. If your home is served by a well, call 311 and the County will provide testing. See the entire discussion.
