Peoples Water Service has no lead water mains is the system. Some components that have lead include older fire hydrants, brass fittings installed before 2014 and lead or copper service lines. There are approximately 86 lead service lines in the city and are mostly in the older areas of the town. Streets include East and West Madison, West Hickory, West Jefferson, East Pine, South Franklin, North and South Washington, East Cypress, Jackson, Elm, McFee, Fairfield and Huey.

In a continuing effort to reduce any lead in the finished water delivered to homes, Peoples Water Service uses only low lead fittings, is changing out older meters with low lead meters, and adding corrosion control to treat the water. More information about lead in drinking water can be found at https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and-drinking-water/basic-information-about-lead-drinking-water#getinto.
