Help get the lead out

Customers enrolled in the Lead Reduction Program receive water pitchers and filters to use for cooking, drinking and preparing infant formula until six months after their lead service line is replaced. Photo credit: Denver Water.

Friendly reminders for the Lead Reduction Program:

Use the water pitchers and filters.

Customers in the program receive a free Brita water pitcher and filters certified to remove lead. Replacement filters are sent regularly. Use filtered water for cooking, drinking and preparing infant formula until six months after your lead service line is replaced.

Collect water samples, if asked.

Some customers are being sent kits, in boxes with Denver Water’s logo, to collect water samples from their faucets for free water quality testing. Please follow the instructions and return the water samples free of charge. The results will help us determine if your home has — or doesn’t have — a lead service line.

Watch for construction.

Through the addition of $76 million in federal funding, our Lead Reduction Program will replace an additional 3,000 to 5,000 lead service lines this year, beyond the 5,000 already scheduled for replacement in 2023. This means our crews will be in more neighborhoods.

New to our community?

If you’ve recently moved into our community and live in a home that has or may have a lead service line, check our interactive map showing the possible locations of lead service lines in our service area.
