Eliminating Lead Service Lines in Hazel Crest

Download (10 MB)

Through the Drinking Water 1-2-3 Technical Assistance program, MPC coordinated expert assistance to help communities tackle their most pressing water challenges. Together with the Center for Neighborhood Technology, MPC worked with the south suburban Village of Hazel Crest to identify the probable location of lead service lines which connect a property to a utility’s water main. This effort also created a targeted replacement plan for the Village to remove all lead service lines over time, eliminating a potential public health threat. A suite of public education materials — including content for the Village’s website, newsletter, public access TV channel, and brochure — and a resolution committing Hazel Crest to eliminate lead service lines rounded out this project.
