Lead Service Replacement

The replacement of public side lead services (from main to shutoff valve located in sidewalk or grassed area) is a part of Providence Water's Water Main Rehabilitation Program.  During construction, homeowners have the option to also have the lead service connection from the meter to the curb replaced by Providence Water's contractor.  Providence Water will provide a no-cost estimate for the replacement of private side lead services.
