Is my water safe to use and drink?

Yes, your water is safe to drink. As part of our commitment to ensuring the highest water quality standards, we are proactively replacing lead water service lines to further enhance your safety.

In accordance with regulations and guidelines set forth by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), regular testing and monitoring of water quality are conducted to ensure compliance with safety standards. Lexington's water system is continuously monitored and treated to meet these stringent requirements.

The decision to replace lead water service lines is based on a proactive approach to prevent any potential lead contamination and provide even safer drinking water for our community. By adhering to these regulations and implementing the lead water service line replacement project, we aim to exceed the recommended safety standards and prioritize the health and well-being of our residents.
