Gov. Evers and the Department of Natural Resources have announced that $402 million of financial assistance will be delivered to 106 Wisconsin municipalities over the next year to improve drinking water infrastructure and water quality. Milwaukee is set to receive $30 million for replacement of lead water service lines. The funding will allow the city to “move forward with an ambitious plan to nearly double the pace of lead service line replacements and eliminate the cost to homeowners” according to a statement from Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson. In this video from Building Wisconsin TV, we show how a residential lead water service line is replaced with Plumbers Local 75 contractor Mid City Corporation.
