Resources for Further Exploration

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency:

  • The EPA’s webpage on lead in drinking water details regulations aimed at reducing lead contamination. It outlines the “Lead Free” Rule, which mandates that pipes, fittings, and fixtures used for drinking water must meet strict lead content limits (0.25% for pipes and 0.2% for solder and flux). The Safe Drinking Water Act prohibits the use of non-lead-free materials in public water systems and residential plumbing. The page also covers the legislative history and specific exemptions for non-potable water uses.

Implementation of the Lead and Copper Rule

  • The EPA’s webpage on the Lead and Copper Rule Implementation Tools offers resources to aid states and water utilities in adhering to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR). Key tools include FAQs, public notification templates, service line inventory guidance, water quality monitoring protocols, public education materials, and corrosion control treatment recommendations. These tools are designed to help public water systems meet compliance deadlines, manage lead service line replacements, and ensure public safety through effective communication and reporting strategies.
