This work is critical in maintaining healthy drink water for our residents and we appreciate the service provided by Van Rite Plumbing,” says Steven Grenier, director of Green Bay Public Works.
Government Funding Programs
The Federal Government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has provided over $20 billion dollars to states for infrastructure replacement, lead testing, corrosion control and more. In Wisconsin, the Department of Natural Resources manages the lead pipe replacement program and available funding and grants. Below are helpful links to these two programs.
