Is lead an Issue in Bonney Lake drinking water? No.
Fortunately, Bonney Lake does not have an issue with lead in its water. As a result of all the publicity surrounding the water issue in Flint Michigan and other cities with high concentrations of lead in the water, many Washington cities and school districts have looked at their water systems for possible issues.
Lead could be an issue with very old service lines that had lead components. Bonney Lake is a relatively new city (incorporated in 1949 with 327 residents). Bonney Lake has no lead service lines or lead goosenecks, as these were prohibited well before the water system was established in Bonney Lake.
The City does maintain compliance with state/federal requirements Lead and Copper limits. Not only that, but the Bonney Lake water system has also obtained a “reduced monitoring status” due to the level of compliance the City has achieved with the addition of corrosion control facilities at various City wells and springs.
