POTTSTOWN — The Pottstown Borough Authority is looking for $6.7 million in state funding to pay for the removal of approximately 700 lead water service lines to homes in the borough.
The homes are on, but not limited to, Willow, North Hanover, Spruce, North Evans and Beech streets, as well as Lincoln Avenue, where service lines are found to be "in critical condition," according to a legal notice published July 17 in The Mercury.
The lead pipes, which pose a risk of contaminating drinking water when they deteriorate, will be replaced with copper pipes under the project plan.
