BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — Benton Harbor officials announced Monday a Request for Proposals for lead service line replacement work has been released and posted online for potential bidders.
Officials say contracts will be issued in January, with work beginning as soon as ground conditions will allow.
Replacement work will consist of replacing the estimated 4,000 lead service lines in the city by May 2023.
It will involve replacing the lead service line from the city’s water main to the curb stop, the curb stop to the first shutoff valve in the home – 18" inside the home – or both. The lead or galvanized pipe lines will be replaced with copper lines.
