Yes. Ferndale’s water is the same; it comes from the same source and the quality remains at, or above, standard. The Action Level exceedance is a result of more-rigorous sampling procedures, and impacts only those properties with lead service lines. Lead can enter drinking water when in contact with older, lead-based pipes, solder, interior plumbing, and fittings and fixtures, particularly when the water has remained stagnant for extended periods of time. Properties with lead service lines have an increased risk of these issues.
