Op Ed from David LaFrance - Together we can get the lead out
March 11, 2016

By David LaFrance CEO, American Water Works Association

If there is one lesson to be learned from the Flint crisis, it is this: Our communities will be safer in the long run with no lead pipes in the ground.

That’s why the board of the American Water Works Association – recognizing our first core principle is the protection of public health -- voted unanimously on March 7 to forge on a path toward the removal of all lead service lines. AWWA believes that as water professionals and a broader society, we should seize this moment of increased awareness to develop solutions for eliminating all risks from lead in water.
