Many Roncesvalles property owners may unknowingly have lead water service pipes. These pipes are usually undersized, resulting in low water pressure. More importantly, lead exposure is harmful, especially to children and pregnant women. Likely beginning in July, the City will be replacing its lead water service mains during the reconstruction of Roncesvalles.
The City says this water main replacement period is an ideal time for property owners to replace their own lead water service pipes. In some cases, the City may be able to assist property owners with this replacement. Please contact Toronto Water at 416-338-8888 for information.
