Does my water contain lead?

The water that Brookfield-North Riverside Water Commission delivers to the Village contains no detectable lead. Lead in tap water typically comes from the service pipe that enters a building or the plumbing within the building. Newer homes typically do not have lead service pipes or lead containing plumbing. Because homeowners, typically own the service pipe leading into their building and the plumbing within it, they should consult with a licensed plumber and/or consult with their Public Works department if they are concerned. View U.S. EPA guidance to reduce lead in your water.
