The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently finalized revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule, providing the first major update to the rule in 30 years. The rule offers small Community Water Systems serving 10,000 or fewer residents certain flexibilities for compliance.

Join us and the Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative (LSLRC) for part one of a three-part series of tele-town hall events intended to inform local leaders and water utility operators from small municipalities on the implications, requirements and opportunities associated with these rule revisions.
