Crews from four Flint area companies are replacing lead galvanized lines that lead from the street to the water meter in Flint homes during this fourth phase of Fast Start. The fourth phase is an extension of the Mayor's efforts to restore safe and clean drinking water to the residents of Flint.
According to the press release, "Crews discovered copper service lines at 479 homes that did not need to be replaced." Soon the FAST Start Initiative will begin checking the composition of 4,000 service lines using hydro-excavation in order that replacement crews can avoid digging up copper lines and concentrate on homes with lead galvanized pipes.
