FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The second phase of the FAST START lead service line replacement program is underway, with officials reporting around 50 lines having been replaced so far.

This phase of the program has been underway for around two weeks, and the goal is for contractors to replace 10-12 lines daily.

Officials hope 200-250 lead service lines will be replaced this month.

Mayor Karen Weaver is heading to Washington, DC on Tuesday to update lawmakers on the progress, and talk about what still needs to be done to restore safe drinking water in Flint.
