New partnership created to eliminate over 8,000 lead service lines in Wausau

October 12, 2023

Wausau Mayor Katie Rosenberg has announced a pioneering initiative that will revolutionize the effort to eliminate lead service lines nationwide.

“This is really the goal. To lift up people and make sure the health of our communities improve, along with the economy,” said Mayor Rosenberg. Building on her participation in the Vice President’s Lead Pipe Summit earlier this year, Mayor Rosenberg is leading the charge to replace an estimated 8,000 LSLs in Wausau with an innovative Community-Based Public-Private Partnership (CBP3) approach, originally developed by the EPA over 10 years ago.
