Lead in Drinking Water

Public Water Systems are required to test the lead levels in their drinking water every three years to ensure lead does not exceed the action level of 0.015 mg/L.  In August 2015, the City completed this requirement by testing the water from 50 high-risk (built before 1986) homes and businesses and the action level was not exceeded. To see these and other water test results, please refer to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s Drinking Water Database and type in ‘City of Round Rock’ for the water system name.

The City does not have lead service lines or lead piping within its water distribution system. However, homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead in their home piping system. To check for lead piping, a simple lead swab test may be performed by the homeowner. Test swabs can be purchased at local hardware stores. To test for lead in drinking water, you must take a sample of your water to a commercial laboratory. To learn more about lead in drinking water, please visit the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website.
