Water quality platform provider 120Water supports EPA LCRI

In response to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announcement of the Lead and Copper Rule Improvements (LCRI), 120Water reaffirms its commitment to advancing public health protections and accelerating the replacement of lead pipes. 120Water will host a webinar on 14 Dec 2023 to share how utilities can prepare their communities for the work ahead.

120Water is the US provider of software and solutions that drinking water professionals across the nation use to execute lead reduction programmes. Founded in 2016, 120Water currently serves over 5,000 water systems and 11 state agencies. It has worked on some of the most prominent lead reduction programmes in Pittsburgh, Denver, Newark and Providence. 120Water is a partner of the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) which provides services to vulnerable communities across the country.

The LCRI introduces enhancements to the existing Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), including a mandatory 10-year replacement requirement for identified lead service lines, continuous verification of unknown service lines, and a lowered action level exceedance to 10 parts per billion (ppb). LCRI is yet to undergo the legislative process before becoming law, and steps will be followed, with the anticipated effective date before October 2024.

“There is a monumental lift ahead for water professionals and service providers like 120Water,” said 120Water CEO Megan Glover. “We are committed to investing in innovation and collaborative partnerships to assist water utilities and regulators in navigating these complex times.”
