New Jersey DEP sends letters to those with lead water pipes

New Jersey residents, here is an important utility safety announcement.

Be on the lookout for a letter sent this Tuesday, February 22, 2022 by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

The letters are sent to nearly 200,000 New Jersey residents, who currently receive their drinking water through lead pipes.

New Jersey state law requires lead pipes to be replaced, as the DEP confirms on its website that “there is no safe level of lead in drinking water or anywhere else,” a said New Jersey DEP commissioner Shawn LaTourette. “He poses a significant threat, especially to our children, and we must eliminate him where we find him.”

To that end, the New Jersey DEP knows that there are 1,084,258 other unknown lead service lines, according to the NJDEP.

New Jersey state law requires that known lead pipes be replaced by 2031.

Letters are sent in accordance with the law under the “Primary Service Line Replacement Act”.

Legislation requires that all water systems be required to notify owners and tenants of lead pipes.
