Lead in the Water: Policy Options to Replacing Lead Service Lines
The tragedy in Flint, Mich., caused states to rethink their approach to lead in water and lead service lines. Although water utilities provide corrosion control to keep lead pipes from leaching, utilities do not control the pipelines from the water service to the building or house. These lead service lines account for an estimated 50 percent to 75 percent of the lead in drinking water.
This webinar will explore policies for states to address lead-service lines and options for replacement, providing policymakers insight into the tools and approaches states have undertaken to address lead in drinking water.
