Test your water for lead

You can have your water tested for lead.

Lead in drinking water

  • The City of Minneapolis delivers lead-free water to its customers.
  • However, if your service line or home plumbing contains lead, the lead can get into your drinking water. 
  • There is no safe level of lead and it can cause serious health problems

Test your water for lead

You can request a lead testing kit to check for lead levels in your water.
