ZIONSVILLE, IN & FRANKLIN, IN (FEBRUARY, 1, 2022) – 120Water and the Alliance of Indiana Rural Water (Alliance) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to Alliance 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 upcoming regulatory changes will be cause for more stringent expectations of compliance for all Water & Wastewater systems, which means systems in rural areas will have to do more with less,” said Connie Stevens, Alliance’s Executive Director.
“This is where our partnership with 120Water comes in. They can provide our members with new resources at a discounted price, to help them meet complicated requirements and deadlines. Take the new Lead and Copper Rule for instance. They have a great resource for meeting these requirements and along with our AIRW staff will provide expert training and solutions. Team Alliance is excited to partner with 120Water because they understand our membership is our priority.”
As the leading 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 Alliance 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 Alliance 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.”
