Gov. Approves Lead Service Line Bill

Yesterday, Governor Murphy, signed S-4110 into law, a bill which the League supported, that provides clear authority for municipalities and municipal water systems to enter onto private property to perform lead service line replacement. The new law takes effect immediately.

The new law allows a municipality to pass an ordinance that would authorize a municipality, municipal water system, or their agent, to enter a property to perform lead service line replacement. A municipality would be required to provide the property owner and any residents notice of the replacement at least 72 hours before entering the property.

This law provides municipalities with some of the tools necessary to begin addressing the State’s issue with lead in drinking water. The League would like to thank the sponsors of this bill and the Governor for taking decisive action in passing and signing this important legislation.
