Lead Reduction

Sarnia Lead Reduction Program

The City of Sarnia’s drinking water is transported through the municipal watermain below the street, which then connects to smaller underground pipes that bring the drinking water into your home (also known as water service lines).

In certain parts of the City, these water service lines are made of lead which poses a threat to the vulnerable public (i.e. small children, pregnant women, women who are planning to become pregnant, as well as the elderly). Excessive exposure to lead, can lead to health effects.

The City of Sarnia is conducting lead verification visits to homeowners who live in the Lead Zone to visually inspect in home water services and to take a water sample from your tap. There is no cost for this visit.

If your home is in the Lead Zone depicted on the map, call our office Monday through Friday 8:00 am – 4:00 pm to book your free verification visit!

Once you have booked your verification visit, a qualified City of Sarnia team will arrive at your home to visually assess your internal plumbing and take a water sample. This employee will have official City of Sarnia identification. In addition, the homeowner or tenant must be home at the time of the appointment. This appointment should only take a few minutes.

NOTE: Even though the visible plumbing in your home doesn’t look like lead, the service lines underground may still be made of lead.
