- Water World
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced over $30 million in grant funding under the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation (WIIN) Act for six recipients to reduce lead in drinking water.
“A pillar of our work at EPA is ensuring that every person in every community has safe drinking water,” says EPA Assistant Administrator for Water Radhika Fox. “The science on lead is settled — there is no safe level of exposure. This grant funding will help reduce exposure to lead in drinking water and should be used to support underserved communities that are most at risk for exposure.”
