The City of Ferndale has launched a pair of online tools that will help residents learn about the materials that comprise their water service lines. These tools were a City Council initiative following the announcement that four Ferndale properties had exceeded the State of Michigan's Lead and Copper Rule Action Level during the 2020 testing period.
The interactive GIS map allows residents to search properties by address or parcel number to gain information about the material(s) of the home's pipe connection.
If your results are not available using the map, or if you want to verify your materials, the City has launched an online form to help you do so.
You'll be walked through several steps, including using a simple online testing process, taking and uploading a photo of your water meter, and answering several questions about your home and circumstances. The Department of Public Works will review your information and contact you with information about your home's water infrastructure.
