Federal guidelines require citywide inventory of lead pipes


The EPA has recently revised its Lead and Copper Rule with revisions that include requiring communities and water utilities to identify lead pipes that connect drinking water service to homes and other buildings. In accordance with the federal mandate, the City of Springboro is required to prepare and maintain an inventory of service line materials for all properties located within the City.

We are asking every home and business owner to check your plumbing material and complete this form. If your home or business building was constructed AFTER 1986, you do not need to complete the form as lead pipes were not used.

To identify the plumbing material in your home or business, look in either of these locations: underneath a sink or next to a water heater. Plumbing material is either lead pipe, copper pipe, galvanized steel pipe or plastic. Watch this video to determine the material.

 Please call 937-748-0020 or email the Service Department with any questions. For more information, visit the US Environmental Protection Agency
