North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board members would like to remind residents that the Town will fund the replacement of residential drinking water lead service lines as part of New York’s Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017.
In 2018, the Town was awarded a $611,363 Lead Service Line Replacement Program, or, LSLRP grant to assist with the cost of the water line replacement for eligible homes.
Water mains maintained by the various water districts in the Town of North Hempstead have all since been replaced, however, individual lead service lines connecting homes to these mains may still exist.
Lead in service lines primarily existed in homes constructed before 1939. This program would allow for those individual service lines to be replaced and would cover the cost to do so.
Implementation of the lead line grant is being undertaken by the Town of North Hempstead Community Development Agency, or, CDA.
“Replacing these residential lead service lines will help to protect the health of our residents and their families,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We are grateful that this critical funding has been made available.”
