BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — $10 million dollars is going to remove lead pipes in Buffalo. The funding is part of the more than $331 million the city received from the American Rescue Plan, signed one year ago.
OJ McFoy, Buffalo Sewer Authority General Manager, said there's still about 40,000 lead service lines in Buffalo. That makes up 40-50% of the city.
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and and Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) announced this funding on Fargo Avenue on Friday. Brown said help is on the way for landlords who need to have these pipes replaced. However, Brown warned property owners who neglect this issue, and keep renting it out.
