Be a community lead testing volunteer

The drinking water in Kingston exceeds strict water quality standards. As the water leaves treatment plants, it’s regularly tested according to Ministry of the Environment standards and is completely lead free. However, lead can enter the water supply from old lead service pipes or lead solder in your home’s plumbing.

Utilities Kingston tests the water in Kingston homes and businesses for lead every six months and is currently seeking 20 qualified property owners interested in participating in the regular, voluntary Community Lead Testing Program.

Interested residents and business owners can contact Utilities Kingston customer service at 613-546-0000. Learn more at our page on community lead testing.
