Join APEX and Denver Water in Replacing Every Lead Water Line in Denver!
A National Problem
Did you know it’s National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week? October 22-28 is a week dedicated to informing the public of the harmful effects of lead in drinking water and reducing childhood exposure. Led by the Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. government is attempting to make all Americans aware of this issue. On a local level, Denver Water is taking steps to remove every lead water line in the Denver Metro area. Even though their water supplies do not contain any lead, Denver Water has estimated there are as many as 58,000 lead service lines remaining throughout their service area that may contaminate their clean water with lead particles. This is a massive project, but to manage it Denver Water has established its own lead reduction program that is spearheading the efforts to remove lead water lines. They are offering free lead tests and educational materials for customers and are urging people to be proactive about this problem.
