The City of DeKalb utilizes Corrosion Control Treatment (CCT) by adding a Phosphate blend to reduce the amount of corrosion or leaching of lead and copper from internal plumbing systems. Lead found in tap water usually comes from lead pipes, the corrosion of older fixtures or from the solder that connects pipes. When water sits in leaded pipes for several hours, lead may leach into the water supply. Please visit the following websites for more information.
