This post was originally published on this site

The Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative is hosting another webinar on lead service line replacement.  This webinar, Collaborating to Replace Lead Service Lines: Partnering to Protect Public Health, will be held on September 26, 2018 at 3:00 EDT.  Go here to register for the webinar.

Lead service line (LSL) replacement is not a simple task. The LSL Replacement Collaborative has developed an online toolkit to help communities across the United States develop and implement replacement programs.  Collaboration between partners is critical to a successful community-wide lead service line replacement program. Effective programs will engage diverse community stakeholders, including both drinking water and public health professionals. This webinar is the third in the Collaborative’s five-part series. It will explore case studies of effective partnerships between public health agencies and water utilities. It will provide examples of how to leverage both sectors’ expertise and implement creative solutions to accelerate LSL replacement efforts.

Speakers:

  • Dr. Caroline Johnson, Acting Deputy Commissioner, Philadelphia Department of Public Health
  • Gary Burlingame, Director of Bureau of Laboratory Services, Philadelphia Water Department
  • Brendan Doyle, Environmental Public Health Analyst, Denver Department of Health and Environment
  • Alexis Woodrow, Community Relations Specialist, Denver Water
