NRDC’s Flint team and data scientists Jake Abernethy, Georgia Tech and Eric Schwartz, University of Michigan have created the online, interactive Flint Water Service Line Materials Map.
This allows Flint residents to find out the latest information about the known or likely composition of their home water pipes, according to NRDC’s Flint team.
The release of the map coincides with the restarting of Flint’s service line replacement program, according to NRDC. The project was paused due to Michigan’s COVID-19 restrictions. Flint residents must also grant the City permission to inspect their water service lines and to replace lines that are made of lead or galvanized steel, which comes at no cost for residents.
