The Safe Drinking Water Act requires that EPA regulate the water provided by Public Water Systems. The most common source of lead contamination occurs due to corrosion of lead-containing solder, fixtures, and pipes within a building’s plumbing system. This corrosion occurs when the water has low pH or is acidic, and/or when the water has a low mineral content.
