Lead and Copper Rule

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced changes to drinking water regulations which now requires water suppliers to identify all materials used in the construction of water distribution systems nationwide. This is know as the Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI).

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is requiring public water supply systems to submit this information before October 16, 2024. Because this task is so monumental, we are requesting your assistance in collecting the needed information.

The City of Clearwater as the water supplier, must identify all construction materials used on both our side and the consumer side of the water meter.

Please take a moment to complete the Lead Service Line Inventory Survey. Paper copies of the survey are offered at City Hall. 

When the completed survey is submitted, a $10 credit will be issued to the utility bill of the service address. If you are renting and choose to fill out the survey, you must have your landlord review and sign the completed survey.
