The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has awarded Toledo a $200,000 grant to aid the city’s efforts to identify and remove lead pipes from the water system. The funds will be used to develop a predictive model aimed at assessing pipes on a home-by-home basis, determining areas to target for line replacements, water filter distribution and more. Toledo officials also plan to launch a public education campaign to help minimize lead exposure.
