The New Lead and Copper Rule

Kurt Wanninger, MBA and Senior Project Manager in the Drinking Water group at Wessler, has more than 30 years of professional experience in the water, wastewater and stormwater utility industry as well as more than 16 years in municipal government. In this webinar, Kurt, in conjunction with Jeff Rowe, Partner at Baker Tilly, discusses information on the new Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) requirements that have been published by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These new LCR changes will have significant impact on communities that have lead service lines within their drinking water system. Some of the hurdles they cover include:

  • communities will need to inventory their service line materials
  • community water systems will need to increase the quantity of lead and copper sampling
  • communities will need to develop a lead service line replacement plan
  • lastly, these new LCR changes may significantly burden a community financially.
