EPN members Betsy Southerland and Elin Betanzo created this set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) designed to help communities with lead service lines understand all the steps in the lead service line replacement (LSLR) process. These FAQs outline how lead enters drinking water systems, community funding opportunities for and information about LSLR projects, the steps involved in these projects, and health-protective measures that should be followed for the duration of an LSLR project. Communities can use this information to monitor the process and ensure that their needs are being identified and addressed. They can also help EPA track and report the total funds allocated to disadvantaged communities for projects that support the reduction of lead in drinking water.
