Greenville Water does not have ... [cached]

Greenville Water does not have any evidence of fully-lead service lines in its system, but historically water mains and galvanized steel service lines in Greenville were connected by a 2-foot long lead "gooseneck" and some of those remain buried beneath streets, particularly in older sections of the system, which dates back to 1898, David Bereskin, Greenville Water System's CEO told The Greenville News.

Greenville Water has replaced 200 miles of galvanized lines since 2009 and when crews replace the main line, they also replace the service lines that run from the water main to individual water meters, Bereskin said.
Bereskin estimated that the system has 302 miles of galvanized lines and fewer than 3,000 lead goosenecks that still need to be replaced.
Its estimates are based on a sample of the system's 175,002 service lines, Bereskin said. The only way to get a true count of how many galvanized lines or lead goosenecks that still exist is to check the materials at every water meter in the system, he said.
Greenville Water as a whole has never exceeded the Environmental Protection Agency's action level for lead, though individual homes have exceeded the action level of 15 parts per billion in the past, Bereskin said.
Bereskin said Greenville Water's galvanized mains and service lines are safe and the system tests for metals within households for its own quality control in addition to required SCDHEC and EPA tests.
Replacing the lines is needed to reduce water loss, improve water pressure and to reduce customer complaints of water quality and water color. Galvanized lines can sometimes create a reddish tint to the water, Bereskin said.
If a customer is concerned with their water, they should call Greenville Water and a representative will set up a time to visit, Bereskin said.
Along with Greenville Water's pristine source water from its own watersheds, Bereskin said the system is different from the ongoing human health crisis in Flint, Michigan, because Greenville Water is a separate entity whose sole purpose is to provide clean drinking water whereas the department in Flint was responsible for all utilities.
Greenville Water has its own engineers, scientists and laboratory, is required to add corrosion control to its water and has its own oversight from an independent board of five commissioners.
"We are all professionals and responsible for providing the best quality water we can to the public," Bereskin said.
Bereskin said the commission's stewardship and focus on its financial base has positioned the water system to be able to perform line replacements well ahead of what most other communities are able to do.
Greenville Water takes 50 samples when it tests for lead, Bereskin said. It tests only locations that are considered Tier 1, the most likely places where lead could be found. It tests the same 50 locations every three years as the lead rule requires, he said.
"Because of our excellent quality and reports that have been submitted to the state since the Lead and Copper Rule came into effect, we are now on a three-year testing program," he said.
Lead has been found at individual homes, but the system has never exceeded the action level, he said.
Though Greenville Water has been aggressive in its own line replacements, it doesn't notify customers that they may also need to replace their portion of the lines, Bereskin said.
He said it was not Greenville Water's responsibility to tell customers what to do with their private property.
"That's an individual decision for all of the separate homeowners," he said.
Bereskin said he wasn't worried about that because of Greenville Water's corrosion inhibitors.
No matter what happens with the EPA's lead rule in the future, Bereskin said Greenville Water is in good shape with its service lines.
"I don't believe that Greenville Water is in a bad position as far as lead service lines," he said.
