EPA Releases "Lead and Copper Rule Revisions White Paper"

Posted By IAMU, Friday, November 4, 2016

Last week, EPA released the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions White Paper, an 18-page document that provides examples of possible regulatory options to improve the existing Lead & Copper rule. 

The rule is under review now as EPA works to develop the rule’s “long-term revisions,” also known as LCR-LTR.  According to EPA’s LCR-LTR website, “the paper highlights key challenges, opportunities, and analytical issues presented by these options.  Options include lead service line replacement, improving optimal corrosion control treatment requirements, consideration of a health-based benchmark, the potential role of point-of-use filters, clarifications or strengthening of tap sampling requirements, increased transparency, and public education requirements.” 

The White Paper is not a regulatory document, and provides possible options for the future revised rule.  The proposed rule is expected to be published in 2017, and all community and non-transient non-community public water supply systems will be affected.
