Helping Detroit Get The Lead Out

Source: BlueConduit

The Kresge Foundation has awarded BlueConduit a grant to help the Detroit Water & Sewage Department (DWSD) improve the efficiency and equitability of its lead service line (LSL) replacement program. This Kresge grant, along with funding from The Rockefeller Foundation, is financing the creation of a complete and accurate home-by-home LSL inventory that will provide DWSD with actionable data to guide its lead replacement efforts.

BlueConduit, a water analytics company, pioneered the use of machine learning to inventory and locate LSLs in 2016. Their cutting edge, predictive model has saved municipalities valuable time and money and, most importantly, has reduced the number of days citizens may live with the risk of lead exposure.
