INDIANAPOLIS — Citizens Energy plans to replace 2,500 customer-owner lead service lines in Indianapolis homes over the next five years. The program is estimated to cost more than $22 million. The utility has begun adding a $.50-$.75 charge on utility bills to help fund the program.
A spokesperson for Citizens Energy Group estimates there could more more than 50,000 homes in Indianapolis that still utilize lead service lines. The service line runs water from the water main to the customer's house. Customers own that pipe, which can cost thousands to replace.
