Gary-New Duluth residents invited to discuss possible lead pipe replacement
The city is exploring grant opportunities to help cover the cost.
DULUTH — The city is pursuing grant funds that could help residents pay to replace private lead water service lines, with an early focus on homes located in the Gary-New Duluth area.
Residents are encouraged to attend a public meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. George Serbian Orthodox Church, 1216 104th Ave. W.
City officials will share information about how to handle the risk of lead in a home's drinking water supply, and residents will also be able to schedule inspections to determine the presence of lead service lines.
