In accordance with a new requirement from the EPA and KDHE, Clay Center Public Utilities has issued a survey seeking information on the location of lead pipes in Clay Center.

The nationwide project has a 100% completion requirement, meaning every lead pipe in the country must be identified, documented, and removed.

The commission has attached a link to the survey on recent billing statements, on their website, and has paper copies of the survey available at the commission’s building.

The survey is required to be completed by October.
