As stewards of our community’s well-being, we want to emphasize the critical importance of an upcoming initiative, the Water Service Line Inventory Survey. Your participation in this survey is pivotal to ensuring the safety and quality of our drinking water.
The water that flows into our homes is a lifeline, and its quality is non-negotiable. To guarantee that your water is safe for consumption, we must identify and document the types of service lines that deliver it to your property. This information enables us to assess the presence of lead or other potentially contaminating materials in these lines. The data we collect will guide our efforts to protect our water supply from harmful substances and maintain the high standards of water quality that our community deserves.
Historically, lead pipes were commonly used in water distribution systems due to their durability and malleability. However, their usage for water lines ceased many decades ago. The possibility that your home has lead service lines is highly unlikely, but we still need documentation that they do not exist in our system. Your participation will enable us to create a comprehensive inventory of our water lines and save our employees time by not having to go door-to-door to request information.
The survey is available online and in print. Please mail or hand deliver the survey to Calvert City Hall before January 31, 2024. Those completed before January 31 will receive a one-time $5 credit on their monthly water bill.
For those who wish to complete the online form, please visit calvertcityky.gov and click the link to complete the survey. If you have questions on how to find your waterline, please call Calvert City Hall and a representative from the Utility Department will contact you.
We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your commitment to the safety and health of our community. By working together, we can ensure that our drinking water remains clean, pure, and free from lead contamination.
Thank you for your unwavering support in safeguarding our precious water supply. For more information, call Calvert City Hall at (270) 395-7138.
