The City of Bovey is performing the 3 year Lead and Copper water testing this June and we are working to comprise a list of homes that have lead service water lines or lead pipes in the home.  If homes are identified with a lead service line, the City can look for grant money to help replace your service line.  Lead pipe is easily confused with galvanized pipe, both are a dull silver, but lead is non-magnetic, whereas galvanized pipe is magnetic. Lead is soft and when scratched with a coin turns a shiny silver, whereas galvanized remains a dull silver. These are checks you as a homeowner can do. If you suspect you have a lead service line or are in doubt please contact Kevin Odden at 218-245-1633 or email at boveycitypw@hotmail.com
