INDIANAPOLIS & BLUFFDALE, UT (December 13, 2021) – 120Water and the Rural Water Association of Utah (RWAU) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to RWAU 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).
“Complying with the revised Lead and Copper rule will be a challenge to many of our Utah Water systems. RWAU is working with 120 Water to see that there is a clear road towards that compliance. We here at RWAU believe this will be the best avenue for systems to achieve success.” said Dale Pierson, Executive Director at RWAU.
As the leading end-to-end solution for managing critical lead and drinking water 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 solution — which will be available with preferred pricing to RWAU 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 RWAU 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 safeguard water quality and protect public health.
Utah water systems interested in learning more about this partnership, preferred pricing, and the resources available to them may contact Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnerships at 120Water.
