Lead pipe replacements for the home

According to guidance from the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI)tThere is a need to mitigate the risk of lead failures.

Our long-term objectives are to remove all lead pipes from our network by 2040; this performance commitment supports the delivery of this goal.

We follow the DWI's guidance on replacing pipes proactively and during day-to-day repair or maintenance.
