I'm tanzania vega back with you on the takeaway last night the m._t._v. video music awards were hosted at the prudential center in newark new jersey and while the scene inside was one of celebrities musicians glitz and glamour the man. What am i worth celebrating music. The way it always was intended in a hockey rink in the middle newark outside activists were using the occasion to bring attention to the city's ongoing water crisis elevated lead levels in the water. It's a problem that's plaguing cities across the country especially those who's that rely on antiquated lead service lines for their drinking water according to the natural resources defense council. It's not just newark atlanta. Providence events and pittsburgh are some of the most egregious of thirteen u._s. Cities with over one hundred thousand residents that are dealing with lead in the water in newark lead was found in some public schools as far back as two thousand sixteen when mayor ras baraka joined the takeaway in january. He laid out the scale of the crisis. We're going to replace about fifteen hundred lead service slides <hes> beginning of march obviously <hes> we're going to run out of money and we have twenty three hundred or anywhere between fifteen to twenty thousand lines to fix fix <hes> with additional support well yesterday at a press conference with new jersey governor phil murphy mayor baraka announced that the money had come in and and there's now an expedited plan to secure newark's water once and for all with this new money. We're anticipating that no one would have to pay anything to get their lead. Service lines actually replace <hes> we are going to replace approximately eighteen thousand lead service lines and homes across the city of newark but after such a prolonged struggle to get consistent answers from the city. There's still confusion about networks plans to provide clean safe drinking water to its residents joining me. Now is gwen hogan a reporter for w._n._y._c. who covers health when thanks for joining us so on monday mayor baraka governor murphy announced a plan as we just heard to replace all all lead service lines in the city no more than thirty months. Is that realistic theoretically yes if they can do what they say they want to do. This would be tremendous right. There's very few other cities that have replaced lead service lines at this quick of a pace and comprehensive fix that would change all of them because really the water is fine at the source but it's when it travels through these lead pipes that are connected to the city's water mains that lead is potentially leaching into the water there there but at this point there's so much distrust between residents and the mayor there is skepticism about whether he's going to be able to pull this off. Mayor ras baraka walk on our show in january said he needed money yesterday at a press conference. He said he got the money. Where did it come from right so essex county which is where newark is located needed has agreed to issue alone to newark the city will have to pay it back over thirty years six point two million dollars each year and these funds one hundred twenty million dollars players will allow the city to both expedite the plan to replace all the lead service lines and also make it free for homeowners because as you know is a low income city the majority of the cost to doing this work was going to be up to a thousand dollars for homeowners which was a barrier to entry for many you were at the protests in newark right right outside of the video music awards. You have some tape from one of the protesters. Her name is shaquille hamas and her son tested high for elevated levels of lead listrik. Listen into what she had to say.

Part of race and class has a leader later emerged to step forward and say. I'm going to help fix this. If there's been any leader in this at least for my point of view it's been the they've been sounding sounding the alarm on this since before anyone was willing to acknowledge it you had mayor baraka denying in two thousand seventeen to two thousand eighteen th this was an issue and the energy was pushing and pushing <hes> <hes> ever since it's kind of come out and glaze over the past week you've seen governor. Murphy pledged that you know this is a safe water is not you know a privilege. It's a right and so he's started to push but if there's been any leader that's released sought to fix this the most it's been the n._r._d._c. karen i see a city paralyzed that can't get water to people that is saying to people if you want water come and get it and if they would stop and think if someone emerged new jersey has about a thousand fire departments most of them volunteer here.

"Nj dot com and Eric Olson from the environmental group and DC natural Resources Defense Council. Let's take a phone call from Bob in Morristown who says he works in the water treatment industry. Bob, you're on WNYC. Thank you so much for calling in. Yes, hard, Brian. Thank you for taking my call. I have two comments one from being a homeowner. I've bought five houses in my life. But also I've been in the water treatment business for thirty five years number one all houses that I know that I bought the pike from the street to the house is a responsibility, the whole motor a very big deal. When you buy a house to have that inspected, and if it needs to be replaced because can Leech off of it. It's a homeowner's responsibility. This is not new number two Dur water for water. If they're having to add phosphate or another product, Line Pilots. Understood. But I think they're being treated a little unfairly on. On this issue. Taking up pikes from households has been going on for decades. It's not a new problem with most people Bob thank you for both those points. Erico sentimental DC on the first one the lead in any pipes coming out of the city system into people's homes being the homeowner's responsibility. Or in the case of apartments, which is a lot of what we're talking about the landlords responsibility. Not the city's yes. So this is a point of contention the water utility industry would like to hold the homeowners responsible for paying for replacement of those pipes or at least for part of the payment. And it's our view that in general. I mean, some cities actually required lead service lines to be used. So for example, Chicago required them up until nineteen eighty six other cities expressly encouraged them, and in fact, most cities approve the materials that are being used in a service line, and they have. Full control over the service line. They can shut it off. They can repair it. So we think it's sort of a problem for the water utilities to try to dump this responsibility on homeowners. Usually, it's not actually stated in local code or local law who owns it. You can imagine a lot of other utilities such as cable, TV and electricity. And so on they don't claim that the homeowners responsible for everything that's on private property until it gets into the home. So I think basically it ought to be the responsibility of the city and some cities like Lansing Michigan have just taken it upon themselves to replace all the wet service lines and spread the cost over the whole service base. And the other point that the caller made about treatment is correct that the city should be using corrosion inhibitors their called these are chemicals like phosphate compounds Ortho phosphate that can be added to. Water in order to avoid the corrosion. It creates a small coat of protection inside the pipes to reduce the amount of lead that leaches into the drinking water that should have been done in Newark decades ago, actually, the rules requiring that was issued in nineteen Ninety-one. We were involved in getting that rule. So it's it's unfortunate that it's taken this long. Karen, anything to add? Yes. On the the lead service line issue. The city obviously has acknowledged that it could be cost prohibitive for a lot of Newark residents to replace this on their own and so part of the bond program that they're rolling out is the city will pay ninety percent of the costs and homeowners will only be required to pay up to one thousand dollars. The problem though, is that it'll take it'll take awhile. So that's where the sort of their on the interim basis into Bob second point about whether the city is being treated unfairly, you know, the city at the beginning of this the news. Came out when the energy see announced that it planned to sue Newark, I believe in April, and at that point the city didn't deny that it had a problem because the results Republic, it's these are state results that are posted online. The the issue was at the city sort of took. It took disagreed with the characterization of the problem. Right. They said, yes, we have highlight issues. But the problem is he's old pipes. The was saying you have high high lead levels. Also, we question what sort of which way, you're treating your water, and it wasn't until this month at the city said, okay, you're right. There's a problem with our treaty water. So I think the messaging was a little off. Right. So to Bob in Morristown second point, by the way, Bob and anyone else in Morristown and surrounding areas later this hour, we're going to have both your candidates in that, hotly. Contested congressional race in your area, Mikey, Cheryl. The democrat j Weber the Republican both coming up later this hour, but on Bob second point whether the city is being unfair. Early treated in the coverage of this or the activism around this summer citing echoes of the Flint Michigan lead in drinking water crisis. Eric you're quoted in the time saying Newark is not as extremists Flint, but still has a serious problem. Here's another clip of mayor Baraka with WNYC's Jamie Floyd yesterday, he bristles at people making that comparison, and you'll hear him refer to Newark water official Korean deem who said what can was just referring to that the water itself in Newark is safe mayor Baraka, see the point is people want to turn this into flip or something where they can get a good story out of it. The fact is famously had a problem with his daughter system, and they had to cut back on treatment in order to save money. And so people have that question did Newark cut back. Are you trying to save money? They changed their water sorts altogether. We have the same thing we didn't cut back in anything. We've been using the same corrosion control inhibitor. For twenty two years it lost its effectiveness. We are changing it now to use the one that they use and other places. Newark's water is fine. What Korean deem said is. Absolutely, correct. There's nothing wrong with newest water coming out of the source when it enters people who have service line. It becomes an issue. Mayor Baraka with our Jimmy Floyd yesterday. Eric Olson from NRDC is referring to Flint since Newark situation. And how would you compare the two not at all? We're actually very involved in influence as well. In fact, we brought the lawsuit that required Flint to pull out there with service lines, which they're in the process of doing. So there are echoes of Flint. They're not exactly the same. But if you go down the litany, there's a significant health problem with elevated lead levels coming out of people's tap water. You've got a situation where the city was not exactly being straight with people and seeing water's fine people should drink it. Nobody's. Arguing that the water that leaves the treatment plant is dangerous. The concern is that when it gets to people's taps because the city is not properly treating it. It's watching out too much wet exactly the same problem, by the way, as what happened in Flint where they were not treating the water with correct corrosion inhibitors, and it ended up being contaminated with how it's true that Newark did not switch its water sources pointed. So it's not exactly the same. The other two points are that it's primarily it's a heavily African American community. That's heavily impacted and citizens had to sue in order to actually get a solution moving forward. And I think those parallels are there echoes again. They're not exactly the same. But certainly Newark Scott some problems with its tap water in Michigan. Some people alternately were criminally charged around the problems in Flint are you at commending anything like that with? Respect to Newark. Well, we we would love to have a deep investigation into why it is that this happened. For example, what we found is that the monitoring that was being done of was not being done in the high risk combs as it was required to be a lot of it was not in those high risk comb. So they were violating the law by not testing where there were most likely to be problems. So they're supposed to test about one hundred homes through this wed sampling and a lot of the homes. They were testing we're not the high-risk houses. So that made it look like, they're lead levels were lower than in fact, they actually were if you actually test the homes you're supposed to so I think that's something we really should go back and take a look at whether the monitoring was being done correctly. Are you in past years, are you implying fraud in that respect purposely, not testing the places where the results were likely to be the worst too. You know to make the overall results look better. It's unclear why that was being done. But the city admits that they had these are called tier one homes the highest risk homes. They admit that they have thousands of these across the city, and they should have been testing those homes. They were testing other lower risk locations. Not exclusively those but they were testing instead of one hundred of the high risk tier one homes. They were testing a lot of homes that were not tier one. So the question is why I can't say exactly why they were doing that. But it could have had a real impact on the levels. They were detecting Sammy in Newark, you're on WNYC. Hello sammy. Thank you so much for calling. Hi, brian. Thank you for taking my call. I just wanted to let you know. I'm a federal employee. I work in the federal building Peter Rudeina building on nine seventy broadsheet. And I got this job about three years ago and back then when I was interviewing for the job. They told me never drank Newark water, we've always had a water club and about a year ago. They tested the levels in our building and said that they were dangerous and they started providing free water for us. So we haven't had to pay for that GSA provides that and I was done to see that. This is just hitting the news now and the inequity of federal employees haven't been alerted to this. So long ago that we've been able to avoid the water for at least the last three years that I've been there. I don't know how much longer people weren't touching the water and only now people are debating whether it's dangerous or not. And I found that shocking. Sammy thank you so much for helping us report this story Karen will you as a journalist covering Newark aware of that warning and the federal building as early as three years ago. No, I was not aware of that. And thank you for letting us know Sammy part of the reason, I think we're we're learning about this recently is, you know, the Newark started reporting elevated levels of lead in January twenty seventeen right for the last year and a half and part of that is because the state change the way minister polities or water systems who served fifty thousand people or more had to test. So prior to believe twenty seventeen and Eric correct me if I'm wrong cities at the size of.
