Thank you for your interest in a water quality test kit. Our water is free of lead when it leaves our treatment facilities, but tap water can pick up lead from the pipes it travels through, including ones in your home. We treat our water to minimize the chances of this happening. But if you have any concerns based on the age of your home, we're happy to provide a free testing kit. You collect samples then we will pick them up, analyze them, and someone from our water quality team will then followup with results.
Lead was the water industry standard for pipes up until the 1950's, and lead continued to be used in privately installed pipes, faucets and fixtures for decades. That's why our combination of prevention (both in the lab and with our lead replacement program) and free testing are so important.
Louisville Water has removed all known public lead service lines. Now we want to help you determine if there’s a lead line on your property. If there is, we can help. Use the Private Service Line Lookup tool to see if we have information for your property.
Please fill out the below information so we know what type of kit to send you.
