Lead and Copper Survey Sent to Customers

IMPORTANT WATER SERVICE NOTICE- WIN $100.00 UTILITIES CREDIT*

Introduction
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced changes to drinking water regulations requiring water suppliers to identify all materials used in the construction of water distribution systems—aimed at the removal of all lead lines in the system. This includes the public (City) side and privately owned side. Accordingly, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment is requiring that all public water systems complete an inventory of the water distribution system.

What is Required of the City of Winfield?
The City of Winfield must develop a ‘Lead Service Line Inventory’ of both public distribution lines AND private service lines to the home or business. This must be complete by October 16, 2024.

What is Required of the Customer?

All water service customers MUST complete a survey by:

  • completing and returning the enclosed paper survey that was mailed to customers. Return by mail or by dropping off at City Hall OR
  • completing survey online by using this link: https://arcg.is/0jzji10

To avoid repeated requests and potential property digging for inspection, please complete this task as soon as possible. *Those who complete the survey by February 1, 2024 will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win $100.00 credit in utilities. Ten awards will be made.
