SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) — The city of Springfield got $1 million in federal pandemic funds to help identify if your water lines contain lead.
It's part of an ongoing effort to modernize the city's water pipes.
Replacing all the lead pipes in Springfield is expected to take many years and cost upwards of $55 million.
That federal money, which comes from the American Rescue Plan, will help the city determine which pipes to dig up.
