BENTON HARBOR — Benton Harbor City Commission made progress Monday toward removing lead from the city’s aging infrastructure.
City Manager Ellis Mitchell was authorized to award Meeks Contracting Services three contracts – two to replace lead water service lines in Phase I of the EPA replacement project and one to perform a Drinking Water Asset Management inspection, paid for by a state grant.
There are 360 lines being considered in this EPA project, Mitchell said. Phase I of the project includes replacing 100 lines, Abonmarche Project Engineer Jason Marquardt told the city commission.
Phase I would start in October and end in April or May of 2022.
