About BlueConduit

BlueConduit is a social venture that uses machine learning to support decision making to improve public health. Our predictive models help water utilities inventory and locate their lead service lines in order to accelerate their replacement. The team began guiding Flint’s lead service line replacement program in 2016.  Since then, more than 50 cities use BlueConduit’s machine learning models to locate and inventory lead service lines. BlueConduit has inventoried more than 500,000 service lines across its projects in the United States and Canada. Those service lines provide water to more than 1,000,000 residents. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill includes $15 billion to support the removal of lead pipes. This is an opportunity to be part of a team that is helping communities get the lead out of the ground. BlueConduit is funded in part by charitable organizations including Google.org, The Rockefeller Foundation, and The Kresge Foundation.
