Getting the Lead Out of Drinking Water by Replacing Residential Lead Service Lines – Video


See our page with local information: https://northprovidenceri.gov/remove-the-whole-lead-pipe-program/

Reducing exposure to lead is a public health priority for EPA. Unfortunately, years ago, lead was often used in the pipes that connect homes to the water main in the street. This video shows how two communities in New England, North Providence, Rhode Island and Claremont, New Hampshire, are using creative ways to finance the removal of lead service lines.
