Maine CDC says federal funds to take away lead pipes ought to go to different states 

The Biden administration has put aside $15 billion from its 2021 infrastructure regulation to take away greater than 9 million lead pipes carrying water to properties throughout the nation.

However Maine, together with Washington, Oregon and Alaska are all turning down the funds within the first 12 months they’re being made accessible.

The Maine Heart for Illness Management and Prevention says Maine doesn’t seem to have the lead service line difficulty that different states throughout the nation are going through, partially as a result of Maine banned the usage of lead pipes in 1926.
