The City of Howard is asking all residents to help with our Lead and Copper testing by filling out a survey to let us know what kind of plumbing is in your home.  Print the survey by following this link http://cityofhoward.org/Portals/howard/All%20Documents/City%20Code%20-%20Ordinances/Printable%20Documents/Customer%20Lead%20and%20Copper%20Survey.pdf or you can come by the city office and pick one up. We will have copies and will try to get it into everyone's hands.  Our water system is now required under drinking water regulations to send surveys to all customers asking that they complete and return the survey form.
