Lead Service Lines

Do you have lead service lines in your house?

According to files, there are 369 properties in the City of North Battleford with lead service lines. Lead service lines were a common practice in homes being built before the 1980s. Through a process called corrosion, lead can leach from lead service water lines into drinking water and can be harmful to human health, especially for young children, infants and pregnant women. The City of North Battleford offers an Annual Monitoring Program to those properties (usually gets sent out in August) to test the drinking water for lead levels. Results are provided to each property.

The best option to reduce the exposure to lead from lead service lines is to remove those lines and replace them with plastic pipe. There are two options available for City residents (cost-share options are available): Replacement in conjunction with the Underground Pipe and Asphalt Replacement (UPAR) Program OR replacement outside of UPAR.

Please contact City Hall for more information. If you have lead service lines in your house and would like to sign up for the Annual Monitoring Program, please let us know (contact City Hall).
