New Bedford Lead Water Service Lookup
The New Bedford Department of Public Infrastructure has created the following link for residents to verify if their home has a lead service. Drinking water is lead-free when it leaves the Quittacas Treatment Plant, High Hill Reservoir, Hathaway Road Tank and the distribution water mains. However, lead can get into the tap water through lead service pipes that connect your house to the water main in the street or from household plumbing. This page will allow you to check if you have a lead service pipe connecting your house to the water main and inform you of ways to reduce exposure to lead.
