Free Lead Testing - Still a few spots open!
Do you reside in an older home within the Village limits? Did you know that some older homes may still have a lead service line or older plumbing which can contain lead in connections in the piping? In the last thirty years we have learned that lead can have an adverse effect on a person’s health. The Village water is tested annually for lead, with no lead showing up in any of the distribution piping or naturally occurring in the well water.
If you are concerned that there may be a lead service line or lead in your plumbing, you can contact the Village of Baddeck to receive a free test kit. Contact the Village of Baddeck Public Works department at (902) 294-0705 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to have a test kit delivered.
