Lead Service Lines and Water Infrastructure: Sizing the Market and Drivers for Rehabilitation
Published: December 17, 2019 Content info:
Description

Water utilities are responsible for the quality of drinking water at the tap, but the ownership of service lines, which can include lead, is shared, or at least represents the interface, between the municipalities and homeowners. Ownership and responsibility have proven to be a significant obstacle for municipalities attempting to eliminate lead pipes and contamination from water distribution systems.

The count of lead service lines (LSL) across the U.S. is not well known. According to a study that used data from two American Water Works Association (AWWA) surveys, an estimated 6.1 million LSLs remain in the U.S.

In this new Market Insight, Bluefield analyzes:

  • Size of the lead service line problem in the U.S.
  • Lead service line replacement market value by state
  • Lead and Copper Rule action level exceedances and violations
  • Policies and funding for replacement
  • Communities addressing lead service lines
