If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially
for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service
lines and home plumbing. Adams County Regional Water District is responsible for providing high quality drinking water but
cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you
can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking
or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in
drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline
at 800-426-4791 or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
