Google.org announced $3 million in grants to BlueConduit Charitable Fund, NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) and WE ACT for Environmental Justice to support the equitable replacement of lead service lines.
The grants will fund the development of BlueConduit’s open source machine learning technologies, which will enable cities and towns of all sizes to quantify and map their lead service line inventory and help municipalities estimate the cost of replacing this health-threatening component of our water infrastructure. The tool will also allow water utilities to create public-facing maps that aim to strengthen public communication and help meet upcoming US EPA Revised Lead and Copper Rule requirements. Initial software will be made available in the first half of 2022. BlueConduit, WE ACT, and NRDC will work closely with community groups and municipal utilities to ensure that the tools are designed to meet their needs.
