Water, Water

Yesterday, 98.5 The Cat reported that the City of Hudson was to receive $548,422 from the State of New York to improve the quality of its drinking water: "State awards Hudson over a half million to improve drinking water." This was puzzling, since we have always been led to believe that our drinking water is just fine. Today, an article on HudsonValley 360 clarifies the situation. The money is to assist individual property owners, whose water still moves through lead pipes from the main into their homes, to replace those pipes with copper: "City homeowners can replace lead pipes with state funding."
