Lead In Drinking Water

The Franklin Lakes Board of Health would like to share important information from SUEZ Water in their effort to provide customers with knowledge and support that will help them make informed decisions about their drinking water.  As lead in drinking water continues to be discussed widely, customers may have questions. Suez wants to assure you that they are here to help.

Lead in drinking water, if present, primarily comes from piping materials, fittings and fixtures associated with home plumbing and lead service lines.  SUEZ owns the water mains and part of the service lines that extend from the mains to the curb stop. The customer owns and is responsible for the rest of the service line that extends to the home or business.

And for any residents who prefer to contact SUEZ by phone, they have established a Lead in Drinking Water phone line at 844-341-5323 (LEAD).
