Expert team hosts webinar to provide utilities with compliance and communication tools
Zionsville, IN – Kicking off the one-year countdown until utilities nationwide are required to complete the first steps outlined in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), 120Water will host a webinar providing guidance and support to systems of all sizes as they navigate LCRR compliance and customer communication challenges. Hosted by Water Online, the one-hour webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, October 17, at 1 p.m. EDT.

The LCRR mandates utilities across the country to compile a location-based inventory of service line materials by October 16, 2024, a requirement that introduces a myriad of challenges for the majority of systems that lack the digital infrastructure and resources required to track and submit the data. The webinar – aptly dubbed “Countdown to Compliance: LCRR Requirements, Communication Strategies, and Tools for Water Systems” – is scheduled almost exactly a year before preliminary service line inventories are due.

“This initial service line inventory is the foundation for all forthcoming LCRR requirements and represents the first mile marker in the marathon that is LCRR compliance,” said Megan Glover, co-founder and CEO of 120Water. “To some, a year might sound like plenty of time to begin this journey, but we cannot stress enough how critical it is for systems to take action now. This webinar is the perfect opportunity to understand what needs to be included in the service line inventories, how data management tools can help, and best practices for communicating with customers.”

120Water is the premier solutions provider for lead reduction and drinking water programs, and its team of experts will offer unique LCRR insights, and a demo of a secure data-management system utilities can use to build, submit, and manage data. Speakers and bios are listed below:
