Lead Service Line Replacement: Policy Design, Program Development, and Execution
April 27-28, 2020 | Detroit, MI
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 in Detroit 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
