The Lead & Copper Rule Revision (LCRR) contains a requirement for communities to obtain an inventory of the material on all water service lines within the village, town, or city. Morton Grove Public Works will be delivering door tags with a letter to homeowners over the next two years (2022-2024). Information collected from residents will be used to populate the service line material inventory summary for Morton Grove.
Locate the water service line coming into the house/building. This is usually found in the basement or utility room where the water meter is located. A shut-off valve and the water meter are installed on the pipe after the point of entry.
Identify a test area on the pipe between the point where it comes into the building and the shut-off valve. If the pipe is covered or wrapped, expose a small area of metal. Use the flat edge of a screwdriver or other tool to scratch through any corrosion that may have built up on the outside of the pipe.
