We Need Your Help to 'Get the Lead Out'

Apr. 1, 2024 –The State of North Dakota is working to “get the lead out” of the state’s drinking water pipes, and the City of Mandan and its residents are being asked to help.

Many Mandan utility customers recently received a letter with instructions to determine the material their water service pipe is made of  - this is the pipe coming from outside that provides water to a home or business. This is one of the many steps the City is taking to develop an inventory of any lead materials in our water system.

Lead in water infrastructure can be harmful, and this inventory, required by new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules, will help Mandan access funding for the replacement of lead water lines in the future.

If you receive a letter and survey, please complete it by the deadline provided. We need your help to accomplish this important task!

The City of Mandan is working with engineering consultant AE2S to conduct the lead and copper inventory. Funding for this project is provided through a contractual agreement between the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality Drinking Water State Revolving Fund and AE2S.
