Lead Service Line Replacement Credit Program
In order to help encourage more residents to replace their lead service lines, the JCMUA has been authorized to provide a one-time credit of up to $10,000, which will be applied to the customer’s future water service charges to repay the cost of construction. This credit is non-transferable and ends with change of ownership or sale of the property.
Customers who voluntarily replace lead service lines and would like to obtain a credit on their water service bill should click the links below to review the requirements and complete the application form. Voluntary replacement has to have been done after July 21, 2021 to qualify.
