Lead & Copper Survey

Because of recent updates to drinking water regulations, the Kansas Department of Health and Enviroment (KDHE) is requiring each public water system to gather data on their customer's plumbing. KDHE is requiring all water systems to identify each service line, including private home plumbing materials.



Dear Water Customer,

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced changes to drinking water regulations that require water suppliers to identify all materials used in the construction of the water system. The goal of these changes is to identify and remove all lead pipes in the drinking water system. The water supplier must identify all construction materials used on both the supplier’s AND the customer’s side of the water meter, which means that we will need your help! The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is requiring the water supplier to submit this information before October 16, 2024. If the required information cannot be gathered from the homeowner, KDHE may require the water supplier to excavate private lines in order to identify them. That would be very time consuming and expensive. We need your help in order to complete this requirement. Please complete the attached survey as soon as possible. Click here for a copy of the survey.

Thank you for your participation!     

Rural Water District No. 3, Nemaha County
