Lead pipes and drinking water

Toronto water has a sampling program for residents that are suspected to have lead service lines supplying the home. This is likely the case if the house was built before the 1950s (Does not apply to multi residential buildings).


For a testing kit for lead in tap water call 311 and ask for the lead water testing kit.
