This program has been made possible with a $49 million funding package from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST). PWSA will replace over 4,000 lead service lines throughout its water distribution system while avoiding harmful partial lead line replacements. Since July 2016, PWSA has replaced over 3,000 public lead service lines and nearly 1,600 private lines.


PWSA’s Lead Help Desk team coordinates on an individual basis with customers receiving lead service line replacements. Outreach for this program began in Fall of 2018.
