Lead Testing Kits

Free testing kits are available to Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) drinking water customers.

Customers who reside in a PWSA “sewage only” area are not eligible for a free lead testing kit, a map of our service area can be found here.

If you are a PWSA water customer and want to request a free lead testing kit*,
e-mail or call 412-255-2423 between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm
Monday - Friday.

Please provide your name, address, and phone number with your request.

* Please note that it will take 10 - 14 business days to receive a test kit, and due to the volume of samples coming in, we estimate 4 weeks from date of receipt by our lab to receive results.  Customers will be contacted via a phone call or an e-mailed letter.
