Yes. The City of East Chicago has been in full compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency's “Lead and Copper Rule” since 1993. The City meets all applicable federal and state rules concerning lead and copper in drinking water.
Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has been working with the City to ensure that the corrosion control treatment is being introduced into the water at a high enough level to increase the coating of the lines to reduce lead leaching from the pipes, therefore reducing lead levels in your home. The City of East Chicago routinely tests for lead in drinking water and you can view the lead testing results on your Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
