GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A western Michigan city will use a $5.1 million federal grant to help replace about 1,600 private service lines due to concerns over lead.
The work in some of Grand Rapids’ oldest developed neighborhoods is expected to take four years, the city said Thursday in a release.
The Grand Rapids City Commission on Tuesday approved and accepted the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant, which is part of the city’s four-year project to replace private lead service lines in 10 census tracts with copper pipe. The funding will complement another planned $16 million in capital investment for lead service line replacements over the same period.
