Past Partial Replacements

If only the private portion of service pipe is lead (and the public portion is non-lead), the District will cover between 50-100% of costs to replace the lead pipe on private property through the Lead Pipe Replacement Assistance Program (LPRAP).

First, check our lead map to confirm there is lead pipe on private property, and non-lead in public space. Contact lead@dcwater.com for assistance. Alternatively, qualifying properties are listed here

Do I qualify for assistance?

Every property owner can receive a 50% discount, regardless of income. Some residents will qualify for 80% or 100% coverage depending on household size and income.
