Lead Service Line Replacement
The White House and EPA Lead Service Line Replacement initiatives
The White House announced in January 2023 a goal of replacing all lead service lines in 10 years. This White House fact sheet outlines the goal.
The announcement of this initiative may lead to media or consumer inquiries. AWWA has resources available to help utilities communicate with media and customers about lead in pipes and plumbing, including:
- Lead Communications Guide and Toolkit
- Lead Resource page, which includes a printable brochure on lead
- Lead whiteboard animation available on YouTube
- DrinkTap’s Lead in Water page
