YORK, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania water utility says it plans to replace all the lead lines it owns after tests found elevated levels of lead in drinking water.

The York Dispatch ( ) reports that York Water Co. found six of the 50 buildings it tested had lead concentrations that exceeded the “action level” set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The utility says it will replace all its lead lines over the next four years. York Water owns lead lines that serve 1,660 buildings, representing 3 percent of its customers.

York has more than 66,000 customers in 48 municipalities in York and Adams counties.
