National Conference of State Legislatures
Part 2 of 3
With water from lead service lines being identified as a common source of lead exposure in children, states are looking for approaches to replace these lines. Eleven states, including California, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Vermont, Virginia, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Washington and Wisconsin have committed funding to replacing lead service lines through a combination of grants and/or rate increases.
NCSL is hosting a webinar on how states are funding the replacement of lead service lines, with speakers from legislatures, water utilities and advocacy groups discussing successful approaches. Listen in to the NCSL Webinar on Financing Options to Replacing Lead Service Lines to learn about state approaches to funding the replacement of lead service lines.
