2017 -2018 Lead Service Line (LSL) Replacement Update

Thank you for completing the Lead Service Line (LSL) survey. Manitowoc Public Utilities (MPU) is currently evaluating all submitted LSL surveys, in an effort to prioritize distribution of limited Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) funding.

Properties are currently being prioritized for replacement funding in the following manner:

1. Schools and licensed daycares
2. Homes bordering water main replacement projects
3. Homes with children six (6) years of age or younger

The WDNR funding is limited. MPU qualified for $300,000 in funding for 2017 with an additional $50,000 to be used strictly for schools and day cares.  In 2018, MPU qualified for an additional $300,000 in DNR funding.  All survey respondents have been contacted with notice of qualification or non-qualification, however, as funds free up we will continue to prioritize and notify previously non-qualified property owners of funding if available.  

If you have a lead or galvanized iron water service, we remind you that there are some easy steps to reduce the risk of lead in your drinking water. Please visit www.mpu.org/lead/lead-risk-mitigation for more information.
