Revised EPA Lead and Copper Rule Requires Cities To Complete Lead Service Line Inventories
December 20, 2021
Now according to the EPA Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) revision (announced December 16, 2021), public water systems have more work to do. LCR requires cities to develop a lead service line inventory by October 16, 2024. Yet utilities are hindered by missing and inaccurate service line records. Fortunately, machine learning technology now in use in over fifty cities across the U.S. can be used by cities nationwide to address this information gap.
