Special Instructions for Lead & Copper
If you suspect lead solder, lead pipes, or are uncertain about the possible lead (copper) source, the testing should be a “first draw” sample – one taken from a drinking faucet after water has not been run for 6 hours or more (EPA).
If you suspect a new submersible pump, lead service line, connection, lead well screen, paccking collar, or checking the well as the source, follow Steps 1-4 above.
Sample Records Will Be Maintained for 5 Years Before Disposal
