Sioux Falls Removes City’s Last Lead Water Service Line
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Sioux Falls officials say the city’s last lead water service line has been replaced with a copper line.
The city says the final lead service line was taken out of service Tuesday. Sioux Falls says it has made a concerted effort to remove all lead water service lines by the end of the summer even though Sioux Falls drinking water hasn’t ever tested above allowable lead levels.
The city’s Public Works Water Division took out 230 lead service lines in 2016 and 2017.
