Building Public Trust By Protecting Families from Lead in Drinking Water Description

May 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Through the historic bipartisan infrastructure bill, EPA will be distributing $15 billion over five years to states to replace lead service lines to protect Americans from the harms of lead exposure in drinking water. This is a historic opportunity for states to prioritize underserved communities to ensure equity and justice.
Join us for a virtual round table discussion about this issue and how we can advocate for equity in lead service line replacement.
