EPA providing maps of lead service lines

OHIO — Maps identifying lead service lines across the state have been released by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

According to EPA officials, Ohio has 1,878 public drinking water systems that were required to submit the maps by March 9 as part of recent drinking water reforms spearheaded by Ohio Gov. John Kasich to ensure communities are provided information and areas being protected from lead in drinking water.

Ohio EPA is making all the maps it has received available at epa.ohio.gov/ddagw/pws/leadandcopper/map.aspx.

Ohio EPA officials added public water systems that are required to comply with this new requirement are listed alphabetically, and maps received by Ohio EPA can be accessed by clicking the link on the public water system name.

For more information, call the public water system contact for your community listed on the website.
