Event description


Lead service line (LSL) replacement is not a simple task. The LSL Replacement Collaborative has developed an online toolkit to help communities across the United States develop and implement replacement programs and is hosting a series of webinars to address specific topics related to this work.

This webinar in the Collaborative's series will explore replacing LSLs in early learning environments.

Children under the age of six are most at risk from the harmful effects of lead exposure due to their developing brains. As children spend a large portion of their day in early learning environments, such as child care facilities or schools, it is vital to ensure the safety of the drinking water in these facilities.

This webinar is the seventh in the LSL Replacement Collaborative's series, and will explore how to address lead in early learning environments, with an emphasis on lead service lines. Speakers will provide:

  • An overview of lead in water in child care and schools;
  • A case study from Milwaukee;
  • A case study from Cincinnati; and
  • The perspective from a leading national child care organization.


  • Nsedu Obot Witherspoon, Executive Director, Children’s Environmental Health Network


  • Karen Dettmer, P.E., Superintendent, Milwaukee Water Works
  • Jim Nelson, School & Community Testing Liaison, Greater Cincinnati Water Works
  • Krista Scott, Senior Director, Health, Child Care Aware of America
