Lead Testing Banner

Do I Have a Lead Water Service Line?  

?? 
This past week in response to a water advisory, more than 900 of you have performed a simple test to find out what material your water service line is made of and reported it to the Department of Public Services (DPS).

DPS estimates that approximately 6 percent of water customers in Royal Oak have lead water service lines. Taking the simple test helps the city develop its inventory and lead water service line replacement plan.


Find out if you have a lead water service line and report it!
Get started now at https://royaloakmi.seamlessdocs.com/f/LeadTesting

Since 1992, the city has been testing the water of homes with known lead service lines. Tests were recently conducted on 30 of these homes and eight exceeded the new Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act action standard.

And, again, thanks!

Residential Lock Boxes Available at the Fire Department

When a person living alone calls 911 and is unable to open the door, firefighters must break through a door or a window causing costly damage to the person's home and wasting valuable time.
The Royal Oak Fire Department’s residential lockbox program is designed to get quick access to adults living in their own homes during medical emergencies -- especially senior citizens.
When you suffer a fall, stroke or heart attack, every second counts. The lockbox -- which contains a key to your home -- reduces the likelihood of property damage caused by first responders forcing entry into your home in response to an emergency call.


The lockbox program is open to all Royal Oak residents who either live alone or are left alone on a regular basis and have a condition which may result in the need for immediate assistance due to being incapacitated or unconscious. This includes the elderly, physically handicapped or residents recovering from a major injury or surgery.
For more information, go to https://www.romi.gov/1271/FAQ-Residential-Lockbox
