Title Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan Announced by the White House
Introduction EMSL Analytical offers laboratory testing services, sampling supplies and test kits to identify potential lead exposure risks from water, air, soil, paint, dust and bulk samples.

Cinnaminson, New Jersey, January 18th, 2022

Last month, the Biden Administration released its Lead Pipe and Paint Action Plan. The plan represents a significant effort to deploy resources from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law while leveraging tools across federal, state, and local government to deliver clean drinking water, replace lead pipes, and remediate lead paint.

The plan includes over 15 new actions from more than 10 federal agencies to make progress towards replacing all lead pipes in the next decade. The new actions include:

  • EPA allocating $3 billion in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding to states, tribes, and territories for lead service line replacement in 2022
  • EPA launching a new regulatory process to protect communities from lead in drinking water
  • Treasury clarifying that the $350 billion State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund provided in the American Rescue Plan can be used for lead service line and lead faucet and fixture replacements
  • EPA and DOL establishing regional technical assistance hubs to fast track lead service line removal projects in partnership with labor organizations and local water agencies
  • HUD awarding grants to remove lead paint and other home health hazards in low-income communities to protect children and families
  • CDC closing gaps in childhood lead testing through the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program
  • HUD, USDA, and DOI committing to remove lead service lines and paint hazards in federally-assisted housing
  • Establishing a new Cabinet Level Partnership for Lead Remediation in Schools and Child Care Centers


“Identifying and removing lead exposure risks is essential for protecting children and families from lead poisoning, which is 100% preventable,” said Joe Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “The White House reports that up to 10 million American households still connect to water through lead pipes and service lines. Children, toddlers, and teenagers in 400,000 schools and child care facilities are at risk of exposure to lead in their water, and 24 million housing units have significant lead-based paint hazards.” 

Also helping to identify lead hazards are the scientists at EMSL Analytical, Inc. With dozens of laboratories across North America, EMSL analyzes water, soil, air, dust, paint, and bulk materials for lead and other heavy metals. They even offer easy-to-use lead test kits.
