Many of our homes in Albany were built when lead water services were common. We are actively working to replace all lead water services in the city by 2034. If you have a lead water service, please check out our lead service replacement program. If you are not certain if you have a lead water service, call us at 518-434-5322 and we can assist in determining the water service type.
Save $2,000 with our new Lead Service Replacement Program.
The Program provides a reimbursement of up to $2,000 to aid in the replacement of a lead service line. All homeowners with lead service lines are eligible for the grant funds – including owners of small multi-unit properties and those who do not reside in the home. For tenants or homeowners who are not able to complete a replacement at this time, free water filters are available to any household with a water sample that tests high for lead (above 10 ppb).
