ZIONSVILLE, IN & SACRAMENTO, CA(June 1, 2022) – 120Water and the California Rural Water Association (CRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to CRWA members, with a focus on equipping systems with tools and resources to successfully manage water quality programs related to lead and other contaminants. The partnership will also increase the resources available to water systems as they prepare to meet new regulatory expectations due to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR).
Dustin Hardwick, Deputy Director of CRWA said, “CRWA strives to provide the best resources to our member and non-member systems. I’m excited about this partnership with 120Water. It will provide our water systems and their customers with a very vital solution to meet the new Lead and Copper requirements.”
As the leading end-to-end solution for managing critical lead and drinking water programs, 120Water enables local and state governments, water systems and facilities to manage water quality and prioritize investments that protect public health. The 120Water solution — which will be available with preferred pricing to CRWA members — automates actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.
“With potential infrastructure funding and LCR revisions on the horizon, this is a timely partnership to help CRWA members get ahead of the curve,” said Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnership at 120Water. “Providing water professionals with the tools to efficiently operate water quality programs will not only help them meet compliance and access funding opportunities, but to safeguard water quality and protect public health.”
