The Town of Hayden Water Department would greatly appreciate your participation in the Lead Service Line Inventory As your water provider, it is our mission to ensure that our water is of high quality and safe to drink. Our next step to keeping your water safe is to determine how much, if any, lead is in our water system, and that includes what is in our customers plumbing. The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 intended to protect the quality of drinking water and ultimately banned the use of lead in pipes, solder, and other plumbing materials by 1986 However, lead pipes installed previously, still exist Lead in drinking water typically occurs because these lead-containing pipes and plumbing materials corrode over time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is no safe level of lead in blood. Even at low levels, a child ’ s exposure to lead can be harmful

We believe in living true to our roots and true to ourselves. That each of our lives looks differently, each is equally valuable and freedom comes from living it in our own way.

We stand in awe at the beauty that surrounds us and are deeply grateful to live here. Thankful for our ancestors and the road they paved for us and honored to do the same for our children and grandchildren. Through hard work, optimism, and each other we will leave this place better than we found it.

We believe that wholesome is underrated and simple is misunderstood. We are proud of our way of life, even as the world changes around us. We offer welcoming, open arms to those that come to us, always making room for more, but never at the expense of our values.

We believe home really is where the heart is. Where community is cultivated, memories are shared, values are created
