Anyone who owns an older home or building connected to the Norwich Public Utility water system is invited to a public forum Thursday to learn how the utility plans to identify and remove lead pipe connections.
NPU's "Get the Lead Out" campaign is being launched this week as part of a multi-year effort to remove an estimated 1,200 or more water service lines containing lead that run from the street to buildings, NPU officials said.
NPU will host an open house at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Rose City Senior Center, 8 Mahan Drive, to explain the upcoming survey of homes throughout the city to check for the presence of lead. The survey will guide a citywide removal project, funded solely through state and federal grants and NPU, with no cost to building owners.
