City of Binghamton receives $663,000 from State to replace old lead water lines

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The City of Binghamton is receiving money from New York State to replace some old lead water lines.

Binghamton is receiving $663,000 to replace service lines used for drinking water at residential locations.

The City's Water Department plans to identify properties with older service lines to target for replacement.

Lead pipes were common in the early 1900's.

When those pipes corrode, lead can leach into the water, leading to lead poisoning in children.

Binghamton is one of 26 municipalities in the state sharing $20 million in funding authorized by the Clean Water Infrastructure Act of 2017.
