#2369 Lead Service Line Replacement Case Studies IEPA#15210


Technical, Water
IEPA#: 15210

SUMMARY:To mitigate public health risks, comply with likely future legislation, and address public pressure, water utilities are looking to replacing lead service lines (LSLs) in their aging water distribution systems. The state of Illinois is currently formulating legislation requiring utilities to develop lead service line replacement (LSLR) programs. In response to this need, best practices and lessons learned have been collected from LSLR case studies including published literature and interviews with individuals leading LSLR programs. Alongside full LSLR programs, communities have also developed policies around partial lead service line replacements (PLSLR) for main breaks and non-participating households.
Industry experience shows that key factors in determining the cost, time-scale, and overall success of LSLR and PLSLR programs include:
-Available replacement techniques and selecting the best technology for a specific site; -Program funding, including the different government loan programs for projects of different scales; -Community education about the importance of reducing lead exposure and what steps to take; -Policy decisions surrounding the replacement of (completely or partially) privately owned LSLs, including homeowner subsidies, aid in construction coordination/permitting, and outreach to encourage participation; -Best practices for flushing, follow-up sampling, and filter use after a PLSLR or LSLR.
