Lead water line replacement

Water service lines connect homes and businesses to water service. We believe there may be a few lines still in use that are made from lead. We’re working to locate them so we can replace them with modern materials.

We’re asking all Effingham property and business owners to take our water line survey. This will help us identify lead service lines faster.

Swimming pools

You can avoid additional sewer charges when you fill a pool. Make sure you apply for the sewer credit before filling your pool.

If you are building a new swimming pool, you need a pool permit. Most pool repairs do not require a permit.
