Every three years, the City of Ridgefield is required to test for lead and copper levels in systems that use copper plumbing, per the Department of Health. Homes that fall into this category are downtown in the more established neighborhoods. Test results from these samples are published in the city’s annual Water Quality Report which provides measures taken to deliver safe drinking water.
This year the city is asking for volunteers (with copper plumbing systems) to participate in sampling water from their sink. If your home uses copper plumbing and you would like to volunteer please call (360) 887-8251. Upon confirmation, public works will provide you with a bottle for sampling, on Monday, 9/11/23 along with instructions on how to collect the water. They will return on Tuesday, 9/12/2023, to pick up the sample and forward to our lab.
Thanks, in advance, for your participation and assistance with this.
