FEATURED ARTICLES

  • 120Water, the nation’s leading solutions provider for managing lead programs, has introduced a new set of features designed to help water utilities efficiently meet the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) anticipated to go into effect in December and to expand access to clean drinking water as outlined in the $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that became law in November.

  • The $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that passed the House last week provides $15 billion for the replacement of lead service lines in the country’s drinking water system. This funding is coming just in time, as a new survey shows that the majority of water systems are not ready for the sweeping new regulatory changes governing safe drinking water that are expected to begin December 16, 2021, according to 120Water, the nation’s leading solutions provider for managing lead programs.

  • The revised Lead and Copper Rule is here– the clock is ticking, and it’s time to prepare. If you’re feeling uncertain about the contents of the rule, you’re not alone. We pored through its pages to create a suggested ten-year timeline of to-dos and best practices to help utilities gear up for the significant challenges ahead.

  • A Lead Service Line Inventory is the backbone of Lead and Copper Rule compliance. With the revised Rule mandating the creation of an inventory from each water system, finding and documenting Lead Service Lines will set your utility up for future success and help keep your community safe. Once a preliminary inventory has been created through gathering existing data sources or field inspections and employing techniques such as predictive modeling, the next step is validating that data and filling in gaps to ensure the accuracy of records and predictions.

  • The revised Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) mandates that public water systems conduct and maintain location-based Lead Service Line Inventories, in addition to developing Lead Service Line (LSL) Plans with replacement goals. This is a big project with a lot of moving parts – we’ve broken down the various decisions that will make up this process. Walk through our decision tree to understand what steps your team needs to take at each stage of this process. To dive deeper into launching your inventory, check out this Service Line Inventory Guide.

  • With the revised Lead and Copper Rule calling for a full Lead Service Line Inventory by October of 2024, water professionals must begin a massive-scale project. No part of the challenge is more daunting than collecting information on private-side service lines–and systems across the nation have a long road ahead of them to get the data needed to succeed in this project. Gathering all the necessary data will require thorough records audits in addition to proactive communication and education for residents. 

  • As the water industry maneuvers the revised LCR, public water systems may be overwhelmed by gaps in data or lack of historical information needed to build a comprehensive lead service line inventory. Creating and validating inventory will act as the foundation of your compliance program and access to funding resources, so it’s important to get it right.

  • ​120Water announced today the launch of its comprehensive Inventory Management Solution, an expanded offering that will help water systems build and validate their lead service line inventories - a foundational requirement for accessing pending federal infrastructure dollars and complying with new Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR). LCRR requires all public water systems to submit an inventory documenting service line materials for both the private and public side. 

  • 120Water, a leading digital water platform, has released new capabilities to its platform that are designed to help state regulators and utilities comply with the Lead & Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) recently released by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

  • Now that the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) have been finalized and published in the Federal Register, the clock has started. While the revisions are a major step toward removing lead from our water systems, complying with these revisions will create some significant operational challenges.

  • 120Water, a leading digital water platform, announced the formation of an Advisory Board to provide insight to help 120Water continue innovating solutions and services that will drive growth and add value to customers.

  • Major regulatory changes to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR)--the first in nearly 30 years--has created an abundance of challenges for state agencies and water systems as they must take on more than ever in order to keep the public safe from drinking water in lead.

  • A community wastewater system can provide valuable information about public health conditions in an anonymous and rapidly accessible manner. One area where this is especially powerful is infectious diseases, which are shed into wastewater systems. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the scientific community has rapidly mobilized to determine if wastewater monitoring for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, could be detected and quantified in wastewater streams and sludge.

  • This eBook was originally published in April of 2020, a few months after the proposed revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule were made public. In December 2020, the EPA finalized its long-awaited revisions to the existing Lead and Copper Rule (LCR). The revised rule updates the original 1991 rule, changes the current standards, and adds several new responsibilities for water utilities across the country. In light of the changes, we have updated this eBook to ensure that it’s offering the most relevant content and best practices.

  • 120Water™, a digital water platform in use at more than 180,000 sample sites across the nation, completed a sweeping pilot study that monitored wastewater in the state of Indiana for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

  • 120Water, a digital water platform in use at more than 180,000 sample sites across the nation, has joined forces with PUR Community, a new municipality initiative created by PUR, a Helen of Troy brand specializing in at-home water filtration, to simplify point of use drinking water programs for utilities, municipalities, and facilities, including lead remediation programs.

  • Recent trial programs looking at the efficacy of testing wastewater to detect COVID-19 outbreaks have yielded important insights about how this method of testing can be used to improve public health, including providing an early indicator of infection that can be used to trigger advisories and recommendations.

  • 120Water, a digital water platform for modern sample management and compliance, announced a new program that can provide early detection of COVID-19 outbreaks by testing wastewater for the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA that is shed by infected persons. Click to tweet.

  • 120Water, a digital water platform in use at more than 180,000 locations across the nation, announced the formation of a partner program to deliver comprehensive solutions for safe drinking water programs. Click to Tweet.

  • 120Water, a comprehensive digital water platform in use at over 180,000 locations across the nation, has been selected by Denver Water for a three-year, $19 million program to help the utility manage its sweeping and proactive Lead Reduction Program.

  • 120Water is facilitating Denver Water’s pre- and post-LSL replacement water sampling program, as well as its water pitcher and filter supply and distribution program.

  • The City of Newark, NJ initiated a Lead Service Line Replacement program in 2018 as part of its efforts to provide clean, safe, and reliable drinking water for all residents. One of the biggest challenges faced by the city is engaging residents as the project gets underway. With a large transient population of renters, it can be hard to get residents and landlords to fully engage in a drinking water program. Not only can a lack of understanding on the part of the public jeopardize their health, it also makes it difficult for Newark to collect information needed to validate their LSLR program.

  • The City of Loveland’s Water Utility has served customers for decades, proudly bringing water “from snowy caps to Loveland taps.” When the Lead and Copper Rule went into effect in the early 1990s, it was labor-intensive to find a pool of people in the correct tier to complete the sampling.

  • 120Water, a digital water platform designed for modern drinking water compliance, is expanding its capabilities beyond lead to include contaminants such as arsenic, Legionella (ASHRAE 188), and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as “forever chemicals.”

  • Among all the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) regarding testing, reporting, and reacting to lead levels in drinking water is an entirely new requirement for water testing at K-12 schools and licensed childcare centers in a utility’s service area. Here are some thought-provoking considerations for involved schools and the utilities, government officials, and engineering firms who serve them.

  • With all the new facets of the revised Lead and Copper Rule revisions (LCRR) — increased sampling requirements, lead service line (LSL) inventory and replacement, new communications requirements, and school/childcare-facility monitoring — any water utility that has not yet started making preparations is at risk of non-compliance now that the new rule has become law. Here are some factors to consider when reviewing LCRR requirements and conducting LSL inventories and replacements.

  • The proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) announced by the U.S. EPA offer new hope for identifying and reducing sources of lead contamination in drinking water, albeit with new levels of testing required to pinpoint problem areas. Preparing for the new rules means taking active steps toward identifying both the technicalities and logistics of meeting them, as outlined in the links and bullet points below.

  • Complying with communication requirements is as much a part of the proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) as the actual water testing and identification of lead service line (LSL) inventories. Given the magnitude of the proposed changes, it is critical for water distribution utilities to start preparing for its implementation well in advance. Here are some key factors to consider.

  • Due to recent LCR exceedances, PWSA faced skyrocketing customer requests on top of the order to replace 7% of their roughly 18,000-33,000 lead service lines every year. In addition, their Lead and Copper Compliance (LCR) and Lead Service Line Replacement testing program (LSLR) required immense amounts of manpower. These two events combined to require thousands of point-of-use kits to be collected and tested every year. They looked to 120WA to solve the challenges of siloed data sources, kit delivery and pickup, lab coordination, and distribution of results.

  • “The water crisis in Flint is the Cuyahoga River fire of our generation: an event that thrust a widespread but underappreciated problem into the national consciousness.”

  • On October 10th, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced the long-awaited proposed revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule (LCRR) which was promulgated nearly 30 years ago under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

  • There’s a lot of buzz these days around the Digital Transformation of “this” and the Digital transformation of “that” – but what does it actually mean in practice, and specifically for the Water Sector?

  • We reviewed lead sampling efforts around the country and provide a simple overview to assist as states create or expand lead testing programs for schools and childcare facilities.
