A lead service line (LSL, also known as lead service pipe, and lead connection pipe) is a pipe made of lead which is used in potable water distribution to connect a water main to a user's premise. Lead exposure is a public health hazard as it causes developmental effects in fetuses, infants, and young children. It also has other health effects in adults. According to World Health Organization.
Equity in Lead Service Line Replacement A guiding principle of the Collaborative is that lead service line (LSL) replacement initiatives should address barriers to participation so that consumers served by LSLs can benefit equitably, regardless of income, race, or ethnicity.
This program focuses on replacing Louisville Water’s lead service lines with copper lines. Engineers identify the streets where we’ll work and then communicate with homeowners before the project begins. Louisville Water has a goal of replacing its remaining lead service lines before 2020.A Cost of Service Analysis (COSA) is the allocation of costs to the various customer classes served (i.e. residential, commercial, industrial, etc.) corresponding to the level of service provided. Many costs are incurred for the joint benefit of all customers, some costs benefit certain customers more than others, and other costs may benefit only specific customers.The only way to protect public health is to completely remove lead drinking water pipes, which is why we are calling for a ban on partial replacements.
