EASTPOINTE LEAD SAFE!
Michigan’s Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) published in June 2018, requires communities to replace an average of 5% of their total lead service lines each year, meaning 100% replacement within 20 years. The City of Eastpointe takes issues of water quality very seriously. In compliance with the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act, the City has conducted testing of tap water in homes with lead service lines and has not exceeded the Action Level since 1997. We have been committed to replacing on average 10-18% of our original 1,313 lead lines per year. In the 2021-22 fiscal year, the City replaced 182 lead lines and in the 2022-23 fiscal year is scheduled to replace an additional 179 lines.
