The General Assembly is debating an $800 million road funding package, but Indiana’s water infrastructure needs more than $2 billion in urgent repairs.
School districts and towns all over the state are having problems with water infrastructure. Some have lead pipes, 100-year-old pipes or pipes with big holes that leak water.
One such town is Greentown, in Howard County, near Kokomo.
In October 2015, Eastern Howard Elementary School found elevated lead levels in its drinking water.
