Get Started Preparing your Lead Service Line Inventory
Water systems have until October 2024 to comply with the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR).
LCRR requirements include preparing and submitting their
- Lead Service Line (LSL) Inventory
- LSL Replacement Plan
- Public Communications Plan
- Water Sample/Testing Plan
All requirements hinge on an up-to-date inventory. The challenge is that many water systems do not know where the lead lines are nor how many they have.
Here’s how to get started.
