Natural gas prices are still high and are forecasted to remain high through the winter months.  The City of Uniontown is NOT considering a rate increase at this time.

The Environmental Protection Agency has revised the lead and copper regulations for drinking water.  Due to the revision, the City of Uniontown will be required to provide an inventory of all water service lines from the main to the house.  This includes your service line from the meter to the house.  We will be sending out a survey/questionnaire after the first of the year, asking each property owner with water service what type of material is your service line.  It would be helpful if you could take a picture of the pipe where it comes into the structure to help us better identify the type of material.  We will also be asking what type of pipe material for your indoor plumbing.  We realize that we asked this in 2017 but we didn't get responses from everyone and KDHE is asking again for that information.
