City of Brenham Public Water Department Sends Out Customer Lead and Copper Survey
The City of Brenham Public Water System is required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to sample customers' homes for lead and copper every three years. The water sample focuses on homes built between 1982 and 1989. The EPA focuses on these years because of the Lead and Copper Rule in the Code of Federal Regulations. If there aren’t enough homes to inspect that fall between the years of 1982 and 1989, other homes may be sampled.
Resident participation is appreciated to help comply with government regulations and monitor water quality. While these contaminants are not in source water, they can enter tap water through the corrosion of older household plumbing materials.
A link and instructions for the survey will be sent to all customers in their water bill. Survey responses will be collected until May 31, 2022.
