LSLR Financing Case Study: Claremont, NH

Funding source: DWSRF""

Claremont, New Hampshire, with a population of 9,000, utilized $500,000 in DWSRF assistance to replace lead service lines (LSL) and gooseneck service connections. Additionally, if paid by the homeowner, the City replaced the private portion of the LSL. This project was prioritized after a 2016 lead pipe survey by the NH Department of Environmental Services. Some of the City’s LSLs are from the early 1900s and are in the older part of town where many low-income residents and young families reside. As of 2018, the City has approximately 80 LSL to replace.
