Full Lead Service Line Replacement Guidance


Lead Service Lines (LSLs) can be a significant contributor to lead levels at the tap. Many utilities have been actively removing LSLs to reduce lead exposure from drinking water. The revised Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) contains requirements that will impact utility LSL replacement programs. This webcast featured results and recommendations from Full Lead Service Line Replacement Guidance (project 4713), which performed full LSL replacements at over 100 locations across North America. Based on field studies, webcast attendees will learn how to apply lead reduction strategies following full LSL replacement. In addition to project results, utility representatives shared their firsthand experiences and best practices related to LSL replacement.
