Lead Service Line Records

Search our records to see if a property has a lead service line. If it does, it will be listed here.

Nearly 45% of the water services in Milwaukee are made of lead, either the city-owned section from the main to the curb stop, the privately-owned section from curb stop to the meter, or both sections.

Water Main and Service Line

If an address has a meter installed and an active billing account and it is not listed here, the city-owned section of service line is made of copper. 

We maintain records of the material from which the city-owned section of the service line is made. We do not have records of the material used for all of the privately-owned sections. In most cases, the material used on the private section is the same as the city section. However, a property owner may have replaced their section with copper and did not notify the utility. There is no requirement to do so.

The properties listed include those with a meter installed and an active billing account, as well as properties that may be vacant, have the water turned off, or may not have a meter.  
If your property is a corner lot, please contact Customer Service to verify the street address, account number and the service line material.

We are reaching out to customers to collect this information, and we update the database as LSLs are replaced and our meter technicians identify a lead service line while working on a meter. If you replaced your section of lead service line with copper, please call Customer Service at (414) 286-2830 or email watwebcs@milwaukee.gov. Thank you.

A Sept 2017 EPA report quantified and compared contributions of lead from air, soil/dust, water and food to children's blood lead levels.

Children living in older homes with lead-based paint hazards by far have the most exposure to lead. For 1- to 6- year olds in the top 90-100 percentile, more than 70% of the lead in their blood was from soil and dust. The contribution from food was 20% and drinking water was 10%. For infants, soil and dust contribute to 50% of the lead in blood, while 40% was from water and 10% from food. The EPA is now evaluating approaches to setting a health-based benchmark for lead in drinking water.
