1. The department shall allocate appropriated funds equitably among regions of the
state. Within each region, the department shall give priority to municipalities that have
a high percentage of elevated childhood blood lead levels, based on the most recent
available data. In distributing the awards allocated for each region to such priority municipalities,
the department shall also consider whether the community is low income and the number
of lead service lines in need of replacement. The department may request that such municipalities provide such documentation as
the department may require to confirm award eligibility.
2. Further, the department shall establish a statewide plan for lead service line
replacement, which shall include, at a minimum, a report on the implementation of
subdivision one of this section, resources and techniques for identifying lead service
lines throughout the state, the cost of replacing lead service lines, recommendations
for municipalities on methods for evaluating the status of lead service lines present
and guidance on replacement.
3. The department shall publish information, application forms, procedures and guidelines
relating to the program on its website and in a manner that is accessible to the public
and all potential award recipients.
