Replacing Flint’s Lead Pipes is Double the Estimate

A new report average cost for replacing service water lines was $7,500. That’s almost double the average cost of $4,000 estimated by state last fall.

.

The price of clean water in Flint could be rising significantly.

.

A new report obtained by the Detroit Free Press shows the average cost for replacing a service water line in the city through a pilot project that ended this month was $7,500. That’s almost double the average cost of $4,000 for each replacement estimated by the state Department of Environmental Quality at the beginning of the water crisis last fall.

.

The true cost could even be higher. Not included in the calculations were average permit fees of $2,400 per site, according to the 115-page report produced by the engineering company Rowe Professional Services for the State of Michigan.

.

“Isn’t it odd that the city is charging so much for permits, pavement cuts, etc. at a time when it claims everyone needs to do everything they can to help the people of Flint recover?” Ari Adler, spokesman for Gov. Rick Snyder, said in an e-mail Friday. “The mayor keeps saying they need a lot more money to do the replacements, and yet the city is charging very large fees for the work the city wants to get done.”

.

A spokeswoman for Flint Mayor Karen Weaver did not immediately return a message for comment Friday.

.

The increased cost of pipe replacement could further complicate ongoing discussions in Lansing over how much the state should pony up to help Flint as it faces a $460-million revenue shortfall reported last week at the states revenue estimating conference.

.

Earlier this month, Richard Baird, a top aide to Snyder, said that the cost for pipe replacement in Flint will likely approach $55 million, more than $27 million more than what was included in the governor’s budget request. The city already has $2 million from the state to replace about 500 lines.

.

It is possible that as the city scales up its pipe replacement, the average cost could drop, officials said.

.

Baird’s new estimate now matches ones used by Weaver for months in her $55-million Fast Start lead pipe replacement plan. The mayor, who has lobbied the state’s top legislative leaders for Flint aid, originally estimated pipe replacement on average to cost about $3,670 per line.

.

Flint remains under a state of emergency because of elevated lead levels that continue to be found in drinking water supplied to city residents.
