Lead Ban - General Policy

Section I. Purpose.

The purpose of this policy is: To ban the use of lead materials in the public drinking water system and private plumbing connected to the public drinking water system; and To protect District residents from lead contamination in the District's public drinking water system and their own private plumbing systems.

This policy shall apply to all premises served by the Public Water Supply District #1 of Macon County.

This policy will be reasonably interpreted by the water purveyor. It is the purveyors intent to ban the use of lead based material in the construction or modification of the city's drinking water system or private plumbing connected to the city system. The cooperation of all consumers is required to implement the lead ban.

If, in the judgement of the water purveyor or his authorized representative, lead based materials have been used in new construction or modifications after January 1, 1989, due notice shall be given to the consumer. The consumer shall immediately comply by having the lead base materials removed from the plumbing system and replaced with lead free materials. If the lead base materials are not removed from the plumbing system, the water purveyor shall have the right to discontinue water service to the premises.

Section II. Definitions

The weighted percentage of lead of each wetted component shall be added together, and the sum of these weighted percentages shall constitute the weighted average lead content of the product. The lead content of the material used to produce wetted components shall be used to determine compliance with paragraph (A). For lead content of materials that are provided as a range, the maximum content of the range shall be used.
