How to Meet This Year’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions Deadline
Does the date October 16 ring a bell?
It’s the deadline for the EPA’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) — just nine months away. To be compliant, all public water systems have to meet a list of requirements, including the creation of a lead service line (LSL) inventory. Also nine months away is the implementation of the new lead pipe replacement rule, the Lead and Copper Rule Improvements. Creating an LSL can be incredibly complex, and many water systems are struggling to comply. Tap into our step-by-step process to ensure compliance.
Watch this webinar to learn how to create your lead service line inventory, including information on:
- Establishing guidelines for inventory and tracking methods
- Tips for collecting your inventory data — one of the most labor-intensive parts of the entire process
- Best practices for verifying your inventory
- How to prepare for the new Lead and Copper Rule Improvements requirement to replace 100% of lead pipes in the next 10 years
Lead water pipe replacement is the key objective within the EPA’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions, which detail a series of requirements that all 60,000+ public water systems in the U.S. must meet by October 16, 2024 to prevent drinking water contamination.
An estimated 9.2 million lead service lines (LSLs) serve water to properties in communities across the United States. In order to meet the Biden-Harris Administration’s goal of replacing 100% of LSLs, communities, water systems, and homeowners can access the variety of materials to engage with community members, identify funding sources, plan an inventory, and conduct lead service line replacement (LSLR).
Improving America’s water infrastructure is vital to protecting public health and reducing lead in drinking water. Federal and non-federal funding sources are available to assist states and water utilities with these efforts, including lead service line replacement (LSLR).
