QUINCY (WGEM) - Quincy plans to be more aggressive with lead pipe replacement now that it has federal money on the way to help with that.
Quincy Director of Utilities and Engineering Jeffrey Conte said the pipes are not leeching lead and they are meeting regulations now, but as federal and state regulations become more strict, they will still have to make a change.
Conte said if your house was built before 1940 in Quincy, it is more likely you have lead pipes, and the city is working to get rid of the problem over the next 24 years per Illinois law.
