Vallecitos' water is safe from lead
With the recent national media stories on corrosive water leading to lead in drinking water, the District has received questions about lead service lines and water quality in general, which are addressed here.
Vallecitos has been monitoring the drinking water for lead since 1991, when the EPA regulations for lead went into effect. Since that time, Vallecitos has never had a sample with results exceeding the allowable level set by the EPA. Due to the diligence of Vallecitos’ Water Operations team, Vallecitos has a consistent record of either meeting or exceeding all state and federal drinking water regulations, which further highlights our commitment to providing our customers with exceptional quality drinking water.
