Denver Water Lead Reduction Program

NO amount of lead exposure is safe for young children. Children may be exposed to lead from a variety of sources, including lead-containing water pipes. Though the water that Denver Water provides is safe, clean and lead-free, lead can get into the water as it moves through customer-owned plumbing. So they’re replacing customer service lines, one impacted property at a time. To find out if you’re one of them, visit their website. Denver Water is a sponsor of the 2021 Rocky Mountain Early Childhood Conference.
