Will my water utility replace my lead service line?

Service line ownership is shared. Lead services lines on a customer’s property are not part of the public water system and are the responsibility of the property owner.

The utility owns the meter and the service line running from the water main to the meter. The private ownership begins with the line exiting the meter.

City of Rosenberg strongly advises that you contact a licensed plumber for work on your service line, or to determine if you have lead in your private plumbing components.
