KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO AM/FM) — The City of Kalamazoo has been aggressively working to replace lead service lines to homes, but despite that, they still have a long way to go before they will be finished.
The effort began years ago, even before the Flint water crisis put a spotlight on the problem. Since then replacement efforts have picked up momentum, as more state and federal funding has become available.
Utility Director Jim Baker says despite replacing 5,000 lines in the last 30-years, there are still a lot of lines out there that don’t meet new safety rules.
