Riverhead has inked a grant agreement with the State of New York for more than $627,000 in funding to replace water service lines in downtown Riverhead that contain lead.
The $627,327 grant award, one of 18 made to municipalities statewide as part of the State Department of Health’s Lead Service Line Replacement Program, was announced by former Gov. Andrew Cuomo in July 2019.
Riverhead met the state’s eligibility criteria for the program — percentage of children with elevated blood lead levels; median household income; and number of homes built before 1939 when lead service lines were used.
