Happenings in Crestview
The Flint, Michigan water supply tragedy has people concerned about lead in their drinking water
The water supplied to Denver Water's customers, including Crestview Water & Sanitation District, is lead-free however, lead can get into water as it moves through lead-containing household plumbing and service lines. Crestview does not have any lead water mains or lead service lines in its system.
No amount of lead in water is safe, so no level of risk is acceptable. There are things you can do if you are concerned:
- Get a test by a state-certified lab to determine if there is lead in your home's plumbing. Crestview will not reimburse for any tests and/or filters.
- Get a filter certified to remove lead if needed.
- Flush your pipes after you haven't used water for several hours by running the cold water tap for a couple minutes until the water gets noticeably colder.
