The Lead and Copper Rule was initially promulgated in 1991 with minor revisions over the past 30 years. On January 15, 2021, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released Long-Term Lead and Copper Rule Revisions, which are currently undergoing a public comment period. The Long-Term Revisions will have significant impacts on the 60,000 public water systems required to comply with the rule. While aimed to reduce the risks of lead and copper, the revisions will add even more complexity, logistical challenges, and data management considerations. During this public comment period there are steps that utilities can take to prepare for some of these requirements, which can take a couple of years to complete.
This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the key aspects of the revisions and discuss some of the tools for meeting compliance.
