The City of El Dorado is seeking residents' assistance in meeting recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations requiring all public water supply systems develop a Lead Service Line Inventory (LSLI) of water system-owned and resident-owned service lines.
The City must submit this inventory to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) by October 16, 2024.
While these contaminants are not in the source water, they can enter tap water through the corrosion of service line piping and older household plumbing materials. The City is required under drinking water regulations to send surveys to all customers; the survey is included on the next page and you can either mail it to City of El Dorado, 220 E 1st Ave, El Dorado, KS 67042, drop it off at that same location, or you can fill it out online at www.eldoks.com.
As a thank you for returning the survey before Aug. 1, 2023, each reply will be placed in a drawing for one of the following prizes: one year of free utilities (up to $1,200), one month of free utilities (three winners), and several other prizes. Only one survey per residence/business will be accepted. The drawings will be held on Aug. 1.
Additional information on the Lead and Copper Rule and identifying lead pipes and plumbing can be found on the KDHE website: kdhe.ks.gov/547 or at the EPA Website: epa.gov/dwreginfo/lead-and-copper-rule. The following graphic provides more information on the lines at your residence or business.
