Public Health and Water Utility Matchmaking
A founding principle of the LSL Replacement Collaborative is that a collaborative, community-based approach, built on contributions from residents, health officers, utilities, community leaders, and local elected officials, can help provide the strong foundation needed for successful action on LSL replacement.
In order to facilitate communications and collaboration, the National Center for Healthy Housing (NCHH) and Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) have created a survey to match local water utilities and public health professionals to initiate discussions on collaborative efforts to prevent lead exposure in drinking water, such as through full lead service line replacement, to support the mission of the Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative.
If you complete the survey and consent to share your information, NCHH may connect you with a water utility/public health agency in your area. They will also provide guides and tools for cross-sector collaboration on lead poisoning prevention.
