Lot of people in my neighbourhood have a high lead content from lead pipes and are recommended not to drink their water. It's not the city owned pipes. It's not the pipes in the house. It's the connecting pipe from public property to the house that no one ever considers replacing because of the cost and disruption to landscaping.
Interesting. I've lived all over this city and never had that issue. I wonder if it's specific to a certain area of the city core with older connections perhaps.
