INDIANAPOLIS & AUGUSTA, ME (November 24, 2021) – 120Water and the Maine Water Utilities Association (MWUA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to MWUA 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).
“MWUA is very excited about our partnership with 120Water, a leading national expert understanding the revised lead and copper rule. 120Water’s experience and expertise will greatly simplify and shorten the learning curve and timeline to develop a program that will satisfy the revised rule requirements to set each system up for success.”, said MWUA Executive Director, Bruce Berger.
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 MWUA 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 MWUA 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.”
Maine water systems interested in learning more about this partnership, preferred pricing, and the resources available to them may contact Bruce Berger.

ABOUT THE MAINE WATER UTILITIES ASSOCIATION
The Maine Water Utilities Association (MWUA) is a non – profit membership organization which was organized in 1925. At that time a core group of water superintendents recognized the need to meet on a regular basis, share information and ideas and lend mutual support. The group met regularly and became increasingly involved in matters affecting water utilities.
Today, the basic concept remains largely unchanged. MWUA is an advocate for the water supply profession. We share experiences at bimonthly meetings, sponsor training sessions for members and provide mutual support. The networking and interaction are of great benefit to system operators in providing water service, while complying with stringent state and federal regulations. In February of each year we hold a waterworks trade show in Portland, Maine which draws exhibitors from the United States and Canada and waterworks professionals from throughout the Northeast.
