Lead Pipes Replacement by the City of Toronto
There are still lead pipes providing water service throughout the City of Toronto. However, starting in 2011, the city has taken it upon themselves to conduct 1,500 water service replacements every year. There are two sections of pipe that must be replaced, the privately own portion of the pipe that runs from the property line to the water meter (or inside of the building) and the City-owned portion of the water service pipe that connects the from the property line to the actual water main.
Replacing this whole connection is necessary to significantly reduce the lead contamination present in the water – the City will replace it at the same time, or after the privately-owned pipe has been replaced. In order to do so, you must fill out Torontos Priority Lead Water Service Replacement form.

We also perform a new water service installation, which is useful in the event that you need to install a new water service at your business or home. Contact us to discuss this process.

Lead pipe replacement is absolutely necessary for your family health. Lead pipes were used in the previous century before a negative impact of lead contamination on health was discovered. There are still many lead pipes in the water supply system. Many municipalities in Ontario have various lead pipes replacement programs that are designed to speed up lead pipes replacement and reduce lead contamination of water supply as soon as possible.
There is no rebate program for lead pipe replacement in your home. However, you can apply for a Priority Lead Water Service Replacement Program to get an expedited replacement of the city’s portion of pipes for free.
