DC Water’s 2023 Lead Service Line Replacement Plan details the necessary actions from DC Water, customers, the District, and other stakeholders to accelerate replacement efforts. Since the 2019 launch of the Lead Free DC (LFDC) program, DC Water and our partners have been making significant strides to reduce the sources of lead in drinking water. As of May 2023, we replaced 4,287 lead service lines with copper pipes, using District funding to provide free and discounted replacement programs for customers. Customers have saved nearly $7 million by taking advantage of these programs.
