City of Brenham Water Department to Begin Lead and Copper Service Line Inventory

The City of Brenham Water Department crews will begin inspecting and identifying water service lines around the City. The project is part of the Lead and Copper Rule, enacted by the EPA in 1991. In January 2023, the rule was revised under the LCRR (Lead and Copper Rule Revisions) requiring all water systems in the nation to conduct a service line inventory to either identify the presence of or verify the absence of lead in the system. Crews will be working near water meters, cleaning out the meter boxes to uncover both the City and customer-owned lines. In some cases, a small 1-foot diameter hole may be made just outside of the meter box on both the City and residential side.

Citizens who would like to help in identifying their own service line can fill out a short survey online at:

Those who may have additional questions may contact the City of Brenham Public Utilities at 979-337-7400.
