Lead and Copper

It is important to note that there are numerous sources for lead exposure, paint, toys, air, dust, food, jewelry, car batteries, other imported products. To A lesser extent, exposure can come from lead and copper which enters the home from internal plumbing and fixtures.

The Hopkinton Water Department is required to test for Lead and Copper.  The department is on a 3 year reduced testing scheduled due to the passing results. The department is required to test specific taps that would be most likely to have lead solder in them.  Please know that we cannot alter those sites without approval of the DEP.  If you would like your water tested, you can contact a Massachusetts DEP certified laboratory.
