Town of Rocky Mount Water Pipe Material Survey

Rocky Mount Public Works will soon begin doing an inventory of all Town water lines as

required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). New federal regulations

also require the Town to work with customers to determine whether water pipes in homes and

businesses contain lead.

A letter was sent out in the May water bills updating property owners on the Town’s upcoming

work to inventory all water lines (you can find the letter here). This letter asked each property

owner to help the Town identify the water line material so that our Public Works Department

does not have to go to each property and determine the material. If Public Works has to

determine the material, they will use a process that involves digging an 8-inch wide hole on one

or both sides of the water meter to identify the water pipe material. That hole would then be

filled and seeded as necessary. The letter outlined the steps to identify the water line material and

a form for the property owner to complete and mail back to us with that information.

There is still time for property owners to complete the form and return to the Town before Public

Works arrives to access the water meter lines. (The form can be found here). The Town received

hundreds of these completed forms from property owners which will save significant time and

taxpayer funds because workers will not have to physically visit each property to inspect the

lines coming into and out of each property’s water meter.
