Upgrading Infrastructure to Make Drinking Water Safe is Top Priority Among Local Governments as We Start 2023

December 30, 2022

As we head into the new year, there continues to be a strong demand for lead service line replacement, says Rob Keady, senior vice president and municipal practice leader at T&M Associates, in an interview with Michael Keating at American City and County.

Keady says, although no new lead service lines are being installed, many remain and are steadily being replaced due to health concerns, and water treatment plant upgrades to remove PFAS compounds from groundwater sources continue to be a high priority for cities and counties. T&M is currently providing engineering services to a municipality in Burlington County, NJ for the design and construction of new water treatment facilities for the remediation of PFAS contaminants. This will help ensure that drinking water remains safe and in compliance with NJDEP guidelines for allowable contaminant levels.
