ZIONSVILLE, IN & CASA GRANDE, AZ (FEBRUARY 25, 2022) – 120Water and the Rural Water Association of Arizona (RWAAz) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to RWAAz 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).
Tamara De León, Executive Director for RWAAz, said, “Reaching compliance with the Lead & Copper Rule is so overwhelming for any rural water system, this is why RWAAZ is proud of partnering with 120Water to find solutions, provide assistance & support to the systems that need it the most.”
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 RWAAz 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 RWAAz 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.”
