INDIANAPOLIS, IN & INDEPENDENCE, OR (January 12, 2022) – 120Water and the Oregon Association of Water Utilities (OAWU) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to OAWU 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).
“OAWU is excited to work with 120Water in helping our members meet the complicated requirements and deadlines associated with the new Lead and Copper Rule Revision,” said Jason Green, OAWU Executive Director.
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 OAWU 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 OAWU 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.”
Oregon water systems interested in learning more about this partnership, preferred pricing, and the resources available to them may contact Jason Green.
