PWSA is investing $49 million this year alone to remove harmful lead service lines from its water system. So far this year, we have replaced nearly 1,200 lead service lines with nearly 100 percent of replacements completed without digging a trench on private property. Since the program began in July 2016, PWSA has replaced nearly 4,000 public lead service lines and over 2,200 private lines.


PWSA’s Lead Help Desk team coordinates on an individual basis with customers receiving lead service line replacements. Through their work, they have enrolled over 4,500 customer agreements to participate in the program. Outreach for this program began in Fall of 2018.


For those not part of this program, we provide free full lead service line replacements for income-qualified residential customers. To see if you qualify, visit or call Dollar Energy Fund at 866-762-2346.
