Why Replace my Lead Service?

Lead is not present in measurable quantities at the Town’s source of supplies.  Lead that is detected is introduced into your tap water through corrosion of a lead service lines or building plumbing materials.  In Concord prior to the 1930’s, lead was used for exterior plumbing connections and can be found in older buildings. If the service line at your property is made of lead, you are encouraged to replace it or take steps to reduce the risk from lead in drinking water.
