Municipalities

Reduce lead in your community by replacing lead service lines.

According to a study by the AWWA Research Foundation, replacing lead service lines is the only permanent solution that can eliminate the largest potential source of lead in drinking water. State agencies, municipalities, and utilities can contribute to full replacement.

We researched municipal approaches to lead service replacement from around the country. Our findings are published in the Illinois Municipal Policy Journal.

The Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative is a great resource designed specifically to help municipalities address lead in drinking water.

The American Water Works Association has information regarding corrosion control, communications tools, and more.
