BENTON HARBOR — More than 20 percent of Benton Harbor’s lead service lines have been replaced so far, state officials reported Wednesday.
The Benton Harbor Lead Service Line Status Dashboard shows 304 service lines have been replaced in the last 30 days, with another 388 verified to be non-lead lines.
That means out of 4,368 services, 905 have either been replaced or verified as being non-lead, with another 3,463 to go, with the goal of replacing all lead service lines by April 2023.
