Lead and Copper Corrosion
For decades, lead water pipes were installed in many US cities. Now, remaining sources of lead in household plumbing and service lines pose a public health risk. Corrosion control services help utilities locate lead pipes, assess risk levels, and uphold water quality to reassure the public of the ongoing efforts to maintain their safety and wellbeing.
Navigating the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) Revisions
Every water system in the US is impacted by the recent
sweeping changes to the Lead and Copper Rule, the first major update to
the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations in more than a decade. The LCR
is a complex rule, and the revisions significantly alter how utilities must
handle corrosion control treatment, tap sampling, lead service lines (LSL), and
even communicating with the increasingly vigilant public.
The presence of lead is a rising danger to drinking water systems across the country. Corrosion control and lead removal will help to retain all your hard work to maintain your water quality and keep your community safe.
To help utilities meet the October 16, 2024 deadline, Hazen is providing LCR Revision compliance support including development of:
- Lead Service Line (LSL) Inventories
- Lead Service Line (LSL) Replacement Plans
- Corrosion Control Optimization Studies
- Compliance Sampling Procedures
