Is there lead in my water?
The City of Tybee Island follows EPA regulations and guidelines for water system lead testing. Our tests indicate that, system-wide, the lead levels in City of Tybee Island water are below the EPA limits.

However, lead and/or copper from your home's plumbing can leach into your water. Lead /copper pipes are easily scratched with a house key, leaving a shiny streak. A private laboratory can test a sample of your water to test for lead and/ or copper.
