BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Benton Harbor is getting long awaited funds to replace all lead pipes in the city after years of battling high drinking water levels.
The city had already received $17 million in funding from various organizations like the EPA and Clean Water State Revolving Fund.
This new $20 million funding comes from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE).
“No amount of lead is safe and that’s why we’ve got to get lead service lines out of the system,” said Liesl Clark, Director of Michigan EGLE. “How can we get filters to people as fast as possible, make improvements to the distribution system, support the work happening at the water system.”
