Getting the Lead Out: Public and Private Resources for Cities to Address Lead in Water Infrastructure
Date: October 20, 2021
Time: 1:00pm EST
According to the NRDC’s new national survey of lead water service lines, between 9.7 million and 12.8 million lead pipes are connected to residences. The federal government is focused on this issue as Congress has passed President Biden’s infrastructure proposal, which includes spending to replace every lead pipe in the country. Cities have adopted varied approaches to dealing with this challenging situation, both through federal programs and public-private partnerships. This session will look at the breadth of this issue while presenting solutions and lessons learned that cities can use.
