ANN ARBOR, MI — Ann Arbor is moving forward with more state-mandated replacements of home water lines under a $2 million construction contract.
City Council voted unanimously this week to OK a two-year agreement with SWT Excavating Inc. to replace old galvanized pipes with copper to mitigate lead-poisoning risks.
It’s planned as a 20-year project at a cost of $1 million per year, according to city officials.
The current contractor could complete over 200 home line replacements per year, according to bid documents.
