The highly anticipated Lead and Copper Rule revisions have been finalized, meaning utilities must reevaluate their processes to ensure they’re ready to adopt the changes. In addressing this major regulatory shift, we are bringing industry leaders together to shed light on the challenges associated with the new rule.
After 30 years, the EPA has officially passed new mandates for the Lead and Copper Rule. While these revisions are a major step to a more holistic approach for keeping communities safe from lead, the rule will require the water industry to rethink how we address lead and copper in our systems. Leading through it will require a thorough understanding of the Rule’s implications so you can effectively engage in short-term and long-term planning and execution.
That’s why 120Water executive Tom Bruns, former President of Aqua Indiana and current executive, will lead a conversation with other industry thought leaders to walk through the changes and share their recommendations on what you can do now to effectively adopt the revisions and incorporate the new mandates into your larger strategic plan.
To make this webinar as helpful as possible, we want to hear from you! Fill out the registration above and submit your questions ahead of time to help shape the conversation.
After this panel, you will walk away knowing the major implications of the revised LCR to help you gain a sense of how to prioritize those operational changes both in the short term and in the long term.
