Volunteer Households Sought for Lead & Copper Sampling

The City of Edmond’s Water Resources department is currently seeking volunteers to expand the sampling pool for our annual copper and lead testing program. The sampling event starts on June 1st and continues through September 30th.

Due to the type of materials used in some interior plumbing, specific homes may have an elevated risk of copper and lead contamination in their water. To meet the criteria for testing, your home must include at least one of the following:

  • Copper pipes with lead solder installed after 1982 and before 1989.
  • Visual presence of interior lead plumbing.
  • Copper plumbing with lead solder installed before 1983.
  • Presence of a Lead Service Line (LSL). Lead Service Lines are connection sites with lead goosenecks or pigtails commonly defined as the publicly owned portion of the service line between the water main and either a connector line or the curb box.

For households that qualify and have genuine concern about the possibility of high levels of Lead and Copper in their drinking water, we highly encourage applying for this program. Participation is free and full information, along with the application, can be found at https://www.edmondok.com/1524/Lead-Copper-Sampling.
