WASHINGTON (Gray DC) - President Biden has pledged to replace every lead pipe in the country, but some experts warn the funding allocated in the bipartisan infrastructure bill isn’t enough to get the job done.

A leading industry group, the American Water Works Association, estimates the project could cost $60 billion or more.
