Collaboration Will Help Equip South Carolina Water Systems to Identify Lead Service Lines and Comply with Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR)
INDIANAPOLIS & COLUMBIA (April 5, 2021) – 120Water and the South Carolina Rural Water Association (SCRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to SCRWA members, with a focus on equipping systems with tools and resources to enhance monitoring for 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) with preferred pricing available to members.
“South Carolina Rural Water is excited to partner with 120Water in helping our members meet the complicated requirements and deadlines associated with the new Lead and Copper Rule Revision,” said Charlie Gray, board president of SCRWA.
“Our unique partnership affords member utilities access to subject matter experts offering training, assessments, and solutions, sized and based on individual utility needs. 120Water’s depth of knowledge and resources, coupled with SCRWA staff assistance, will help ensure member utilities success and compliance.”
As a provider of end-to-end solutions for drinking and wastewater programs, 120 Water enables local and state governments, water systems and major facilities to monitor water quality and prioritize investments that protect public health. The 120Water platform also helps automate actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.
“The challenges facing water systems today are real and complex, and our fundamental objective is to provide the tools water professionals need to successfully and efficiently operate water quality programs and prioritize investments in their infrastructure,” said Megan Glover, co-founder and chief executive officer of 120Water.
“From testing to compliance, we believe technology should be accessible and lift burdens on water systems of all sizes, but particularly small and medium-sized systems in rural communities. That’s why our team – which includes policy experts, water system alumni and technology innovators – is thrilled to collaborate with Charlie and SCRWA members across the state of South Carolina.”
