I pick B

A. Concerns about public health led to the construction between 1876 and 1904 of three separate sewer systems to serve

{awkward sentence construction, concerns about health cannot lead to a construction of a time frame}

B. Concerns about public health have led to the construction of three separate sewer systems between 1876 and 1904 to serve
{I believe this is corect, follows the correct idiom, between x and y, and concerns agrees with the verb have}

C. Concerns about public health have led between 1876 and 1904 to the construction of three separate sewer systems for serving
{incorrect, for the same reason as A}

D. There were concerns about public health leading to the construction between 1876 and 1904 of three separate sewer systems serving
{incorrect, construction of x is the proper usage}

E. There were concerns leading between 1876 and 1904 to the construction of three separate sewer systems for serving
{awkward construction}

I will take B

"construction between 1876 and 1904 of three separate sewer systems to serve" is looking wrong.

There is no point in splitting "Construction of sewer..." with "between 1876 and 1904 "

I'll go for A.

in B and C use of have is not correct because "concerns" happened in past.
D and E are ackward and wordy construction.

It is A for sure

there is no need to use 'have led' when a simple 'led' will do

Agree with you...No need for "have led"..... simple past would do
