ZIONSVILLE, IN & RAYMOND, MS (May 24, 2022) – 120Water and Mississippi Rural Water Association (MsRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to MsRWA 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).
Kirby Mayfield, MsRWA CEO, said, “One of MsRWA’s key components is to provide our members with key member benefits. This includes training, information and the resources to help them comply with all State and Federal Regulations. We are excited to be working with 120 Water in helping our members to comply with the new requirements of the lead and copper Rule. 120 Water will provide the expertise needed for our members to comply with this new rule.”
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 MsRWA 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 MsRWA 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.”
