Lead service lines are the biggest source of lead in drinking water. As lead service lines age, water breaks off from inside the pipe and makes its way into our tap water and eventually, our bodies. The most effective way to limit exposure to lead is to remove lead at the source. For lead in drinking water, this means focusing on digging up and replacing lead service lines that are some of the greatest contributors to lead in drinking water.
Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund respectfully submit these comments regarding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Primary Drinking Water Regulations: Proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions.
While most of us know about the lead contamination in the tap water of Flint MI, few people realize that lead-contaminated drinking water is a nationwide problem, affecting every state. Action is long overdue. We urge the House of Representatives to support the Tlaib/Kildee lead service line funding amendment.
