Cities are morally responsible for removing lead water hazards, but it will be expensive, as well as legally and socially complicated.  What are some short and long-term steps to dealing with the problem, and what does this imply about who is responsible for the safety of urban drinking water?

Michael Tiboris is a Global Water Fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Public Fellow for the American Council of Learned Societies.  He writes about water justice and the role of water in foreign policy.  This includes work on fair resource distribution, urban water quality crises, water conflict, and cooperative transboundary resource governance.
