[Ord. No. 295, §I, 5-11-2015]
Purpose. The purpose of this Chapter is to:
Application. This Chapter shall apply to all premises served by the public drinking water system of the City of Jonesburg.
Policy. This Chapter will be reasonably interpreted by the Water Purveyor. It is the purveyor's intent to ban the use of lead-based material in the construction or modification of the City's drinking water system or private plumbing connected to the City system. The cooperation of all consumers is required to implement the lead ban.
If, in the judgment of the Water Purveyor or his/her authorized representative, lead-based materials have been used in new construction or modifications after January 1, 1989, due notice shall be given to the consumer. The consumer shall immediately comply by having the lead-based materials removed from the plumbing system and replaced with lead-free materials. If the lead-based materials are not removed from the plumbing system, the Water Purveyor shall have the right to discontinue water service to the premises.
[Ord. No. 295, §II, 5-11-2015]
The following definitions shall apply in the interpretation and enforcement of this Chapter.
- The owner or person in control of any premises supplied by or in any manner connected to a public water system;
- 1. Pipes, pipe fittings, plumbing fittings, or fixtures, including backflow preventers, that are used exclusively for non-potable services such as manufacturing, industrial processing, irrigation, outdoor watering, or any other uses where the water is not anticipated to be used for human consumption; or
- 2. Toilets, bidets, urinals, fill valves, flush-o-meter valves, tub fillers, shower valves, service saddles, or water distribution main gate valves that are two (2) inches in diameter or larger.
- LEAD-BASED MATERIALS
- Any material containing lead in excess of the quantities specified in the definition of "lead free" below.
- 2. Calculation. The weighted average lead content of a pipe, pipe fitting, plumbing fitting, or fixture shall be calculated by using the following formula: For each wetted component, the percentage of lead in the component shall be multiplied by the ratio of the wetted surface area of that component to the total wetted surface area of the entire product to arrive at the weighted percentage of lead of the component. The weighted percentage of lead of each wetted component shall be added together, and the sum of these weighted percentages shall constitute the weighted average lead content of the product. The lead content of the material used to produce wetted components shall be used to determine compliance with Subsection (1)(b) of this definition. For lead content of materials that are provided as a range, the maximum content of the range shall be used.
