Water Service Line Inventory Self-Reporting

Take the Survey – Click Here or scan barcode

The City of Wakefield is compiling an inventory of all service lines in the city. Please take the time to complete the questionnaire and upload a picture to determine your service line material.

If it is found that your service line is lead, you are NOT in any immediate danger. Even with a lead pipe, dangerous levels of lead are not typical. You can take steps to prevent lead levels in your drinking water if it is found that your service line is lead.

– Flushing stagnant water. If water has not been run for some time, turn on your faucets to flush the stagnant water before consuming.
– Clean your aerators. Remove the aerators from your faucets and clean them.
– Install filters. Many home water filters can remove lead from drinking water.
– Get your water tested.
