According to a report from the Natural Resources Defense Council, Wisconsin has the highest number of lead pipes per capita in the country. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will provide $700 million to address Wisconsin’s water access; however, activists want to ensure that funds go to areas who are most adversely impacted by unsafe water.


Joining us to talk about the issue of lead laterals in Milwaukee is Coalition on Lead Emergency Chairperson Richard Diaz. COLE’s mission is to to create a sustainable lead safe environment in Milwaukee by engaging a broad range of community partners.  They focus on education, advocacy, and work-force development. They also work to support and empower parents who’s children have been impacted by lead poisoning.
