The deadline to submit comments on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) is Feb. 12, 2020. Comments can be submitted via www.regulations.gov to Docket No. EPA-HQ-OW-2017-0300. The LCR is an important drinking water regulation, and the proposed revisions are significant in advancing public health protection. AWWA and a number of AWWA sections are actively developing comments on the proposed rule. Engaged, informed input from throughout AWWA’s membership is critical to ensure EPA understands the sector’s commitment to managing lead in water and the challenges presented by the current proposed revisions. AWWA prepared the following resources to assist individual water systems interested in preparing comments on the proposal: Model letter – A template for drafting a comment letter on the proposed revisions Major themes – A brief overview of major issues within the proposed rule and themes AWWA will emphasize in its comments with respect to these issues Resource list – A short list of readily available AWWA and EPA references relevant to the proposal Please direct questions to Steve Via , AWWA’s director of federal relations.
