ZIONSVILLE, IN & MONTGOMERY, AL (FEBRUARY 15, 2022) – 120Water and the Alabama Rural Water Association (ARWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to ARWA 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).
“The ARWA has long served our members with regulation and process assistance including the ever-increasingly important lead and copper rule and its intent to remove lead from drinking water. We already have an established partnership with ADEM and are excited to build upon our current offerings with this new partnership in the private space. 120Water has quickly become a leader in the lead management and removal space, offering cutting edge technology and service to water utilities across the nation. ARWA is proud to be able to bring additional resources, discounted services, and other options to Alabama water utilities to assist them in protecting our fellow citizens with regard to lead management and removal.” – Rob White, ARWA 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 ARWA 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 ARWA 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.”
