Lead Service Line Replacement: Policy Design, Program Development, and Execution
February 4-5, 2021 | Online :: Central Time
Lead service lines have caused increasing concerns around the impacts of lead contamination on public health. The Lead and Copper Rule is poised for change and utilities are prioritizing the removal of widespread and longstanding lead infrastructure. Developing a lead service line replacement program requires an accurate lead service line inventory, efficient program design, responsive program administration, engineering expertise, and effective communication skills that provide transparency to the public.
This Lead Service Line Replacement: Policy Design, Program Development, and Execution training course will provide insight on how to design and implement a lead service line replacement program, including policy design, program implementation, funding options, partnership between utilities and regulators, public outreach strategies, inventory methods and data collection, planning, and engineering and replacement. This course will provide a comprehensive review for crafting your lead service line replacement program and will enable you to anticipate challenges with an actionable plan in place. Join us for this interactive opportunity to network and collaborate with industry peers and hear from Washington DC about their history and progress in replacing harmful lead service lines.
- Identify how lead service line replacement programs have been constructed in Washington DC in comparison to other programs developed throughout the U.S.
- Illustrate how to stand up a lead service line replacement program
- Anticipate challenges that are likely to arise while administering the program
- Apply methods for program implementation
- Instruct operations for lead service line replacement
- Build or improve a lead service line replacement program
- Identify key internal and external communication strategies for program implementation
- Design new lead service line program policy
- Approach cross-organizational partners for lead line replacement initiatives
- Create a lead service line plan including inventory, engineering, and replacement

Ying Tan, Physical Scientist, Environmental Protection Agency
Ying has a passion to reduce lead in drinking water. Her first project with lead in drinking water was during graduate school at the University of Minnesota to investigate the use of stannous chloride as a lead corrosion inhibitor. After that, she joined DC Water in 2011 and focused her career on water quality and research activities on lead in drinking water. At the Water Quality & Technology Department, Ying managed the lead testing and compliance monitoring programs, supported the lead service line inventory developments, and provided insights to lead in drinking water research projects. Ying joined the Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water at the EPA in 2020 and oversees the state grant, Lead Testing at School and Child Care Program Drinking Water. Ying holds a Master’s degree in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Minnesota and a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
