Title:Lead and Copper Rule: Potential Regulatory Changes, Corrosion Chemistry, and Stakeholder Communication
Description:
The recent lead corrosion issues in Flint, Michigan have emphasized the responsibility that water utilities have in protecting public health. The EPA's Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) is currently being reviewed, and proposed revisions are expected to be released by the EPA in 2017.  This webcast presented information on various LCR-related topics, including: National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC) recommendations to the EPA on possible LCR revisions, LCR corrosion chemistry, a utility  perspective on LCR communication challenges and lessons learned, and related resources from WRF. This information will be a valuable resource to help utilities ensure current and future compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule. For an overview of WRF research on lead and copper corrosion, please refer to our State of the Science document.​Additionally, A newly-released Lead and Copper Expert Symposium​ also provides valuable information on possible future changes to the LCR.
