    Water supply mains beneath Chicago streets contain no lead. But the service lines which connect a building to the large water supply main beneath the street generally contain lead. Corrosion inside lead pipes will release lead into a building's water. But Chicago water treatment plants add corrosion inhibitors to the water supply to build up a coating inside pipes which prevents the release of lead. Unless the service line to a home has been damaged or disturbed in some way, damaging the protective coating, there should be no lead getting into a home's tap water. Flint, Michigan's water supply used to be lead free because they routinely added corrosion inhibitors. Because of escalating costs Flint switched their water supply from more expensive Lake Huron water to less expensive Flint River water. What they didn't test for and find out was that Flint River water was more than eight times more corrosive. On top of that, Flint stopped using corrosion inhibitors when they switched from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Corrosion started throughout the city and lead began escaping into the water supply. That's what created their problem and health scare - incompetent water treatment and false cost savings.

  • Wazzup not available

    Water filters in new refrigerators and those that attach to the kitchen faucet allow you to filter your water so that you have fresh safe water at all times. Lot cheaper than replacing piping throughout a house or building. Duh.
