Lead and Copper Homeowner's Survey

Did you know that the City of Tampa is required by the EPA to sample customers' homes for lead and copper every three years? Customer participation is appreciated to help us comply with government regulation and monitor our water quality. While these contaminants are not in our source water they can enter tap water through the corrosion of older household plumbing materials. Historically, our values for lead and copper are low and meet drinking water standards. 

1983-1985: Why this time frame?

The EPA focuses on these years because of the Lead and Copper Rule in the Code of Federal Regulations. However, if we do not have enough homes to inspect between 1983 and 1985, you may be contacted. If you don't know your home's age, check your electrical control panel or housing title. 

Note: The City of Tampa’s water is safe to drink and meets EPA drinking water standards without filtering. 

Thank you for taking this survey! We will contact you if you have been selected.
Disclaimer: Selected homeowners will receive a one-time $10 "thank-you" incentive on their utility bill for participation. However, if you are not selected, you can still request a test but will not receive the incentive. To request a test, please call the City of Tampa Water Laboratory at 813-231-5233.
