INDIANAPOLIS & MILFORD, DE (July 9, 2021) – 120Water and the Delaware Rural Water Association (DRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to DRWA 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 expand 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).
“Our partnership with 120Water comes at a critical time and will provide our members with new resources to help them meet complicated requirements and deadlines associated with the new Lead and Copper Rule Revision, while also preparing for the potential of significant water infrastructure investments to find and replace lead service lines,” said Rick Duncan, executive director of DRWA.
“Our members will have access to subject matter experts offering training, assessments and solutions that match the unique needs of rural utilities. Alongside the staff assistance DRWA provides, 120Water’s depth of knowledge, experience and resources will equip water professionals in Delaware to adapt and prepare with confidence.”
As a provider of end-to-end solutions for drinking and wastewater programs, 120Water enables local and state governments, water systems and major facilities to manage water quality and prioritize investments that protect public health. The 120Water platform — which will be available with preferred pricing to DRWA members — also helps automate actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.
“The challenges facing water systems today are real and complex, but there’s also opportunity for significant investments that can help safeguard water quality and protect public health,” said Megan Glover, co-founder and chief executive of 120Water. “Our aim is to provide the tools water professionals need to successfully and efficiently operate water quality programs and prioritize investments in their infrastructure.”
“From testing to compliance, we believe technology should be accessible and lift burdens on water systems of all sizes, but particularly local systems in rural communities. That’s why our team – which includes policy experts, water system alumni and technology innovators – is thrilled to collaborate with Rick and DRWA members across the state.”
Delaware water systems interested in learning more about this partnership, preferred pricing, and the resources available to them may contact the DRWA. Other water associations interested in learning more or establishing a similar program may contact Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnerships at 120Water.
