The Mohawk Valley Water Authority is working to identify lead service lines in pre-1940’s homes to help protect the health of our customers.
Lead can be harmful at very low levels, particularly in households with pregnant women, infants or young children. If your water has elevated lead levels,
you should have the lead pipe or portions replaced.
We encourage residents of pre-1940’s homes to contact the Water Quality Department at 315-792-0338 to take advantage of our free testing if you have a
lead service line or have a specific concern.
