ZIONSVILLE, IN & GREAT FALLS, MT (May 18, 2022) – 120Water and Montana Rural Water Systems, Inc. (MRWS) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to MRWS 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 include 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).
MT Rural Water Systems Executive Director, John Camden, said, “It is exciting to have 120Water as a partner assisting our rural communities with the new Lead & Copper Revision. Their expertise will assist in providing solutions and regulatory compliance to our water utilities.”
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 MRWS members — automates actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.
“With infrastructure funding and the LCR revisions here, this is a timely partnership to help MRWS 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.”
