MADISON - Manitowoc on Wednesday was named one of 42 Wisconsin communities receiving funds for the replacement of lead service lines in homes, schools and daycare facilities. More than $26 million was awarded over two years through a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources funding program.
“Clean, safe drinking water is a fundamental necessity,” said State Rep. Paul Tittl, R-Manitowoc, in a news release. “As the city works to replace its lead service lines, I am grateful to the state for making this funding available.”
Manitowoc has been awarded $650,000 through the program — $350,000 for 2017 and $300,000 for 2018. Estimates suggest 215 lead service lines exist in Manitowoc.
