Sampling to Confirm Water Safety Begins

The Baltimore City Department of Public Works (DPW) is required by State and Federal laws to periodically test our drinking water for lead and copper residue. Baltimore initially was required to monitor at least 100 different taps once every year. Because the City’s water quality consistently exceeds the set standards, our lead and copper sampling frequency was reduced to 50 homes every three years.
