With an initial goal of removing all lead service lines in 10 years, the City of Newark accomplished an unprecedented feat by completing the project in under 3 years and removing 24,000 lead service lines.
As one of their strategic partners for the project, 120Water is bringing you exclusive access to hear from their team and discuss how they achieved their success during our webinar with the Newark team.
We sat down with Kareem Adeem, Director of Newark Water and Sewer, and Tiffany Stewart, Director of Personnel, to discuss:
– Working cross-functionally to expedite remediation including updating legislation through Essex County and the local City Council
– The methods used to partner with, engage and educate the community on the LSL program and its goals
– Best practices for maximizing the number of service lines pulled per day in order to stretch budget and resources
