Update from Water Utility Council:

 

In February, SB 3080 was introduced by Senator Heather Steans. Among other things, SB 3080 requires the replacement of all lead service lines within specific time frames. The Water Utility Council has met with Sen. Steans and the advocates of this legislation. The WUC has offered language to make the mandate more manageable. The General Assembly adjourned on May 31 without passing this legislation. While the issue of lead line replacement isn't dead, there will be no action on SB 3080 until the General Assembly returns to Springfield in November for the fall veto session. 

 

The ISAWWA WUC will continue to monitor this bill.
