Lead & Copper Rule

June 2024

Help Us Identify the Water Lines in Your Home

In December of 2021, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced changes to the Lead and Copper rule to ensure that any existing lead water service lines are identified, removed, and replaced. The SHWD embarked on an aggressive data collection effort to confirm the material used curbside, and within your home or business.

If you are interested the composition of your water service line we have created a map accessible here:


Help US Help YOU – A small portion of water service line material identification within our District remains unknown. If you notice your service line is listed as UNKNOWN on the map, please call the District office at (631) 427-8190 to schedule an appointment for one of our service operators to inspect your water service line at the first point of entry to your home or business.

Or if you would prefer to self-inspect your water service line, please review the questions in the form at the link / QR Code below, complete the form and submit your results. Examples of what to look for and how to identify your service line material are depicted in the questionnaire.








Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.  If you have any question or concerns, please contact the District at 631 427-8190.

Thank you.
