Sign the Right-of-Entry form and schedule an appointment with the contractor.
On the date that the lead service line is scheduled to be replaced, provide the contractor access to the water meter inside your home.
Contractor and crew will excavate at 2 locations one in the street and one at the curb stop in the yard, likely near sidewalk or curb.
The lead line is pulled and replaced with a copper line. The new line is then connected to the water main in the street at one end and your house plumbing at the other.
Contractor tests and ﬂushes the line to remove debris and lead particles.
Excavations are restored to pre-work conditions with seeding, concrete or paving.
After the LSL replacement is complete, flush all water lines for a minimum of 30 minutes. Start at the lowest faucet and work your way up to the highest faucet. Flush with cold water until the highest faucet has run for 30 minutes. Shut off faucets starting at the highest point and work your way down.
Remove any faucet aerators and clean them of any particles that may have accumulated.
For the next 30 days, ﬂush the line for 5 minutes each morning or after an extended period of no water usage before drinking. For example, taking a shower or bath will flush your lines.
