OSWEGO — The Oswego Common Council voted Monday to approve a program that would help mitigate high lead levels in the city’s drinking water.
The council approved the resolution presented by City Engineer Jeff Hinderliter, who asked committee members to approve the New York State Lead Service Line Replacement Project, a grant that selects properties around the city. It’s been dubbed the “Environmental Justice” zone.
The program was created after an amendment made under New York’s Clean Water Infrastructure Act, passed in 2017, a document from the state said. The program provides municipalities with grant money to replace lead drinking water service lines in residential homes.
