After your water has sat stagnant in your pipes, it’s good to run your faucet for two to three minutes to flush out old water and ensure you are getting fresh water from Aqua Illinois’ service lines. According to the EPA, flushing your pipes reduces lead levels in water.

Think about how you use your water in your home. Every time you take a shower or bath, wash your dishes, run a load of laundry, flush your toilet or wash your hands, you are flushing your pipes. This normal daily use of your water helps reduce potential lead exposure.

Aqua Illinois’ post-flushing samples show that running your water for two to three minutes makes lead levels almost undetectable in most cases. Click here to see our latest data demonstrating how flushing your pipes reduces lead levels. 

Regularly using your water will help the treatment process take effect in your home.

Running your faucet after your water has sat stagnant in your pipes and regularly using your tap water will help reduce your potential lead exposure while also helping us achieve a long-term solution to this lead issue.
