Lead and Copper Symposium 2016

Expert Symposium

Hosted by the Philadelphia Water Department in cooperation with WRF, this event provided insights on possible future changes to the Lead and Copper Rule, based on recent National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC) discussions.

NDWAC is a Federal Advisory Committee that supports the U.S. EPA in performing its duties and responsibilities related to the national drinking water program. Over the past several years, NDWAC has discussed possible changes to the Lead and Copper Rule, which is the regulation that aims to control lead and copper in drinking water systems. NDWAC concluded their efforts in 2015. This one-day symposium featured presenters who participated in the NDWAC discussions. Their insights are captured in the following presentations.
