Water Works - Possible Lead Toxicity Issue?

Last week we had a letter from our water supplier to say that maintenance work will be carried out on the water main to improve flow. This would involve temporary water discolouration.

Today I see a sub contract company for the company who own the water network have started on Chester Rd.

It seems the job entails sending rods back up your tubes from the stop tap outside your house.
edit addition : perhaps they back flush?

We have lead pipes which must have a good internal deposit. Is it healthy to remove it?

Lead is nearly as toxic as the mercury amalgam that I have in my teeth fillings.......doh

Thinks I'll ask.
Or perhaps I need to look first.

No good have emailed Dee Valley Water on

You may ask "and the photo ?" That is Johnny Depp playing The Mad Hatter in Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland. Hatters suffered from mental problems due to mercury exposure in the hat manufacturing process. We won't talk dentists and mercury exposure.

There's not much difference between lead and mercury.

The Google

Or for those who would wish for more education

DEFRA are in charge of water quality.
This is what they have to say about lead pipes. I found this tonight after writing article.
