Water Line Survey

January 24, 2023
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced changes to drinking water regulations which require water suppliers to identify all materials used in the construction of the water system. These changes aim to identify and remove all lead pipes and lead materials used in the drinking water system. The water supplier must identify ALL construction materials used on both the supplier’s AND customer’s side of the water meter (including private in-home plumbing materials), which means we will need your help!
The City of Oberlin needs this information as soon as possible. If the required information cannot be gathered promptly from the homeowner, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) may require city employees to excavate customers’ yards to identify materials, making the process very time-consuming and expensive.
The City of Oberlin needs your help to complete this requirement. Please complete one survey per property. The survey will need to be returned along with a photo of the water line coming into the building as soon as possible. Surveys can be completed online at Water Line Survey
For more information on this survey and a guide to identifying plumbing materials, go to Survey Informational Guide.
