The Biden-Harris Administration Releases Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan

Dec 16, 2021

Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is releasing its Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan. The plan will deploy resources from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to deliver clean drinking water, replace lead pipes, and remediate lead paint. The Plan includes:

  • Collaborating with local, state, and federal partners to accelerate the replacement of lead pipes over the next decade;
  • EPA allocating $3 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to states, Tribes, and Territories for lead service line replacement in 2022, and calling on states to prioritize underserved communities;
  • EPA launching a new regulatory process to protect communities from lead in drinking water;
  • CDC closing gaps in childhood lead testing through the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program, among others.

Beginning December 16, the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions will go into effect to advance critical lead service line inventories that are necessary to achieve 100% removal of lead service lines. The EPA plans to issue guidance—including best practices, case studies, and templates to help develop lead service line inventories—to assist its partners in implementation of the rule.
