Public Drinking Water Notice
Each year, Stoughton Utilities collects drinking water samples from 30 homes, and tests those samples to determine the amount of lead and copper that is present in those homes’ drinking water. All of the homes sampled have lead service lines, and the samples are taken from inside the homes at a faucet that provides drinking water.

Of the 30 sites sampled, six returned samples that contained elevated concentrations of lead. We have no reason to believe at this time that these levels are indicative of the water quality at the other lead service locations, or at the 85% of locations not served by lead service lines.

Lead is not a naturally occurring groundwater contaminant in the City of Stoughton, and is not sourced by the utility’s groundwater wells or water towers. Rather, lead finds its way into homes’ drinking water from the lead service lines that were installed to specific properties, as well as internal plumbing solder and older plumbing fixtures. 85% of properties in Stoughton do not have lead service lines.

We are viewing this as an opportunity to continue to further educate the community about the danger of lead and what they can do to determine if their home is affected to minimize any risk, as well as develop ways for the utility and municipality to eliminate lead from the drinking water system ...
