JACKSON, MI – Jackson officials will use some of their federal COVID-19 relief funds to replace some lead water service lines in the city.
The Jackson City Council voted unanimously at its Tuesday, Nov. 9 meeting to allocate about $2.3 million in American Rescue Plan Act funds to replace roughly 400 lead water service lines in the city.
Lead line replacements are part of the state’s Lead and Copper Rule, enacted after the Flint water crisis. It requires municipalities to replace 5% of their lead service lines starting this year.
