I've lived on Chatham St. since 2009. I too always received those city notices to consider upgrading my line from lead to copper. A year or two back, I asked (my very very elderly neighbour) what she thought about it all. She assured me (almost with pride) that we had indeed had lead pipes. She said she's never considered upgrading, 'what for'?. I asked her 'but why not?,isn't lead toxic?' She stared at me silently for a moment,probably wondering to herself if I was crazy, then just turned around and went into her house without saying anything. She's lived in that house almost 70 years with lead pipes, and she's in her 90s.
I think I might indeed be crazy if I upgraded.
