Develop an Accurate Lead Service Line Inventory and Replacement Plan with BlueConduit
Water utilities and their engineering partners need an actionable, accurate service line inventory for Lead Service Line Replacement Plans. Yet, they lack reliable information about service line materials. This uncertainty delays replacements, increases costs, and extends the amount of time residents must live with the risk of lead exposure.
We can help.
Our customers rely on BlueConduit’s machine learning platform to predict unknown service line materials. Field teams using our predictions regularly achieve hit rates greater than 80%. That high hit rate comes from digging in the right place to get the lead out.
Accuracy & Order Matters
Order matters. Water systems can replace lead service lines in order of risk to the vulnerable, increasing equity and improving trust through transparency.
“Lead service line replacement is a tremendous cost on its own and for BlueConduit to provide the City of Detroit and other municipalities the predictive modeling so that we can update our inventory and better plan for construction in a clustered approach is a significant cost and time savings.”
Detroit Water and Sewerage Department
BlueConduit has worked with water utilities in over two hundred communities to predict the location of lead service lines in their water systems and accelerate their LSLI/LSLR projects.
Over and over again, we’ve seen how effectively the combination of proactive replacement and clear communication works to reinforce public trust.

BlueConduit originated the approach of using machine learning to predict lead pipes and have been doing it longer than anyone else.
Read about our origins in Flint: BlueConduit’s data science predictions of drinking water service line materials improved planning, reduced cost, and provided replacement priorities based on risk of lead exposure.
Now, we’ve created our software platform to streamline this process for our utility and engineering partners.
