A news release from the Village of Oswego says that its lead water lines have all be replaced ahead of schedule. Lead used to make water lines in the 20th century has been phased out over health concerns.

Village staff identified lead drinking lines during the water meter replacement program. Now that the program is nearly complete, village officials think that all lead service lines and water mains have been replaced. It cost the village around $116,000.

Village President Troy Parilier says he's proud that Oswego took care of its lead water lines well ahead of the rest of the state.
