LSLR Financing Case Study: Green Bay, WI

Funding sources: DWSRF, local funding""

Green Bay, WI is replacing lead service lines (LSLs) though several funding mechanisms.  Safe Drinking Water Loan Program (SDWLP) funding can be used for replacing LSLs under the control of the municipality.  Customer-owned LSLs are being replaced at no cost to the customer using $800,000 in funding though the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Private Lead Service Line Replacement Program. 

The two-year program awarded loans with principal forgiveness, which means no debt is incurred on behalf of the municipality.  The city is also using $300,000 from Lambeau Field stadium tax to assist customer replace their portion of the LSL.  If LSLs remain after this funding is used in its entirety, Green Bay will consider applying to the WI Public Service Commission to use rate revenue to fund customer-owned LSLR.
