The City of Towanda is seeking residents' assistance in meeting recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations requiring all public water supply systems to develop a Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) of water system-owned and resident-owned service lines.
The City must submit this inventory to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) by October 16, 2024.
While these contaminants are not in the source water, they can enter tap water through the corrosion of service line piping and older household plumbing materials. The City is required under drinking water regulations to send surveys to all customers; the survey is included on pages 3 and 4, and you can either mail it to the City of Towanda, PO Box 160, Towanda, KS 67144, drop it off at City Hall, 110 S. 3rd, Towanda, KS, or you can fill it out online at www.cityoftowanda.com.
Additional information on the Lead and Copper Rule and identifying lead pipes and plumbing can be found on:
