Following the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan, local water districts are checking for lead in drinking water.

According to a statement issued by the Lake Forest Park water district,

The District’s water main replacement program has eliminated all galvanized iron water main from the distribution system. The District also has no record of any galvanized iron service lines or any lead “goosenecks” between the water main and the meter. This has also been confirmed from field staff as none of these types of pipe has been found during water main replacement projects or during repairs and general maintenance.

The LFP Water District is one of four water district serving areas of Lake Forest Park.

The District serves 897 connections with unchlorinated well water from eight artesian wells and five deep wells from the McKinnon Creek and Horizon View wellfields.

The other three districts are Northshore Utility District, North City Water District, and Seattle Public Utilities.

The map supplied by the City of LFP is incorrect. It does not accurately reflect Lake Forest Park Water District Boundaries. Please update with correct information. City has another more accurate map in its Comprehensive Plan.
