Water Service Upgrades


The service that we provide upgrades water lines of any diameter, of any material to more optimal 3/4 inch copper lines or any other diameter that is required.  Deteriorating lead pipes can compromise your health if lead is seeping into your water supply.  By moving away from old lead lines you can safely reduce the amount of lead content found in your water. 


As the demand of water supply to homes increases, you may experience low water pressure.  This may be caused by sediment build up from old, aging, and rusting pipes.   By replacing these pipes with larger diameter lines you can improve and increase the water flow to your home.   Replacing old water servive pipes generally results in increased water flow as well as removes service pipe materials that are no longer acceptable such as lead and lead alloy.




Programs


The City of Hamilton has initiated a funding assistance program. It enables eligible property owners of residential dwellings that meet the Lead Water Service Replacement Program Guidelines to access a 10-year interest bearing loan for the replacement of lead water private services. The loan is transferred to the property owner’s tax roll with annual payments due on the final tax installment due dates. The loan, if approved, will not exceed $2500 and will only be paid to the property owner upon receipt of the invoices for the completed work, and the inspection of the completed work by City staff under the water service permit.
