Is my water safe?

Yes. To keep our customers safe GWU has been utilizing specific water chemistry since 1993 to coat the pipes and services in our system to help prevent corrosion, allowing for safe clean drinking water. Required annual lead testing has consistently shown our water is free of lead and safe to drink.

Greenfield Water Utility (GWU) is taking action to make the City of Greenfield a lead-safe city. We are committed to protecting the health of its citizens from hazards caused by lead and lead service lines.

Service Lines

A service line delivers water from the water main to your house. It is split into two pieces at your property line.

1. City side, owned and maintained by the city, consists of utility service line and meter pit.

2. Customer side, owned and maintained by the property owner, consists of water service line.
 
How Lead Gets into Drinking Water?

Lead can enter drinking water when plumbing materials that contain lead corrode, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures. The most common sources of lead in drinking water are lead pipes, faucets, and fixtures. In homes with lead pipes that connect the home to the water main, also known as lead services lines, these pipes are typically the most significant source of lead in the water. Lead pipes are more likely to be found in older cities and homes built before 1986.
