AWWA to Address Lead and Copper Rule Revisions
Experts from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and water utilities will analyze and discuss new revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule during a 1 p.m. Eastern webcast on Dec. 5.
EPA announced revisions and clarifications to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) in late September. In some states, the revisions may be in effect as soon as six months. In all cases, the revised rule will be in effect within two years. The rule will affect consumer confidence reports, public education information and compliance determinations. AWWA's webcast will cover the specific changes, how states may regulate these changes and necessary preparations required by utilities to meet the new requirements.
Speakers include Jeff Kempic, environmental engineer, EPA, Washington, D.C.; Lih-In Rezania, P.E., public health engineer, Minnesota Department of Health, St. Paul, Minn.; Stephen Estes-Smargiassi, director of planning, Massachusetts Water Resources Authority, Boston, Mass.; and Eric Burneson, P.E., chief of the targeting and analysis branch, EPA, Washington, D.C., who will serve as a guest speaker on the Q&A panel. AWWA's Director of Regulatory Affairs, Alan Roberson, will moderate the webcast.
