The City of Roseville needs your help!

What type of water service do you have?

Completing your report is simple and only takes a few minutes. 

Step 1 - Locate the Water Service Line

Locate where the water service line enters the building. You’ll need to see where the pipe comes through the floor or wall - this will be in the basement or lowest floor near the water shut-off valve.

Step 2 - Identify the Pipe Material

Refer to the chart for more information. Look at the color and shape of the pipe. Note any threads or bulb. Scratch pipe with a coin or key to reveal the metal. You may need to scratch through corrosion or paint. See if a magnet sticks to the pipe. A magnet will not stick to a lead pipe.A table shows the differences between different metals used for water pipes.

Step 3 (optional) - Take Three Photos

  • Pipe coming through wall or floor.
  • Closer view of pipe with scratch.
  • Further view of pipe that includes shut off valve.

Step 4 - Submit Your Report

Submit your report and photos (optional) to the city website.

Too busy to check? Schedule a free, no-hassle appointment with Roseville Public Works staff, who will stop by your home and record that information for you. A city inspector can complete the inspection in less than five minutes.

The City of Roseville, which has 10,700 water service lines, needs to complete its inventory by October 16, 2024.

If lead is discovered, there is no requirement that homeowners replace that water line but there are financial resources available to residents interested in switching to safer, modern pipe material.
