Lead and Copper Rule Revisions
The EPA recently published the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) that include significant changes to the current Lead and Copper Rule (LCR). The goal of the LCRR is to better protect communities from lead exposure in drinking water. EPA has also announced its intention to further strengthen regulatory requirements through the Lead and Copper Rule Improvements (LCRI), which they plan to finalize in late 2024. The department will begin a stakeholder process for the LCRR in July 2022, with the potential to adjust as EPA releases information on the LCRI.

Register for the first stakeholder meeting that will be held on Thursday, July 7 at 10:00 am.
