Buffalo, NY, Starts Successful Verification Program

Source: 120Water

Buffalo Water draws water primarily from Lake Erie for 275,000 residents through approximately 75,000 service line connections, some of which are more than 100 years old.

In 2021, the EPA announced the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), a major update to the Lead and Copper Rule. By October 16, 2024, all public water systems must complete a lead service line (LSL) inventory that digitally documents the material of every service line in their systems – and a plan to maintain that inventory.

Verifying service line materials can be a daunting undertaking, especially when the system is old and the staff is small. Here’s what Buffalo Water is doing.
