The Federal-Provincial-Territorial Committee on Drinking Water (CDW) is planning to update its drinking water guidelines for lead.

The document, Lead in Drinking Water, is for public consultation taking place from now until March 15, 2017. Some residents in Moose Jaw still have lead water lines that need to be replaced. Josh Mickleborough, director of engineering, estimated that the city has 2,100 lead service connections.
