The commissioner of the Chicago Department of Water Management told members of the Chicago City Council on Friday that it was “quite impressive” that city crews had replaced 10 of the approximately 400,000 lead service lines responsible for contaminating Chicagoans’ tap water in 13 months.
Andrea Cheng, appearing before the City Council’s Budget and Government Operations Committee to detail the department’s proposed budget of $331.2 million in 2022, acknowledged that “doesn’t sound like much, but when you think about the fact that we’ve never done it before, it’s actually quite impressive.”
