Loveland Takes Guesswork out of LCR Requirements

The City of Loveland’s Water Utility has served customers for decades, proudly bringing water “from snowy caps to Loveland taps.” When the Lead and Copper Rule went into effect in the early 1990s, it was labor-intensive to find a pool of people in the correct tier to complete the sampling. Ruth Hecker, Loveland’s Water Quality Supervisor, has been working at the utility since before that original rule went into effect. She and Sandy Mauer, one of their Water Quality Scientists, have seen its changes and effects through the decades.
