In addition to MWRA’s Lead Loan Program, the Lead Service Line Replacement (LSLR) Collaborative is an excellent resource for communities as they continue to rehabilitate critical water infrastructure. The site contains resources pertaining to all steps of the process:
- A roadmap to build consensus with community stakeholders and to develop a plan for implementation
- Tools for replacement practices, from highly technical descriptions to broader, more accessible language useful for outreach
- Descriptions of policies
- References to community case studies
The Collaborative was created to expedite voluntary LSLR in communities to keep lead out of drinking water and is composed of numerous national organizations. With topics as important as drinking water safety, the Advisory Board will to continue to equip our communities with the best tools available. Stay tuned for more updates!
