Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative
Watch the webinar here and download the slides.
In January, the Environmental Protection Agency finalized the most significant overhaul of the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) in two decades. While the rule is currently under review, core components – such as a lead service line (LSL) inventory, replacement plan, public communications, and engagement with the public health community – have consistently been part of any conversation about revisions to the LCR.
The LSL Replacement Collaborative has developed an online toolkit to help communities across the United States develop and implement LSL replacement programs. The Collaborative will soon be releasing a new series of webpages that highlight opportunities to leverage the revised LCR to accelerate full LSL replacement. This webinar will provide a facilitated walkthrough of these opportunities and point to examples of communities already acting on them.

In CEHN's third virtual town hall on lead in drinking water, panelists share their efforts to facilitate lead service line replacement in their communities and discuss opportunities for public health professionals to leverage the US Environmental Protection Agency's revised Lead and Copper Rule in order to accelerate replacement. The presentation for public health professionals covers the importance of addressing lead in drinking water as part of a comprehensive approach to lead poisoning prevention and health equity.
This town hall features Tom Neltner from the Environmental Defense Fund, Meg Trubee from Denver Water, and Maureo Fernandez y Mora from Clean Water Action, as well as moderator Nsedu Obot Witherspoon from Children's Environmental Health Network.

Join NLC and the Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative (LSLRC) as we host our third tele-town hall for local officials to dig deeper into the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) revision to the Lead and Copper Rule published in the Federal Register January 15, 2021.
Participants will learn about rule requirements, share best practices among peers, learn about funding and financing opportunities for lead service line replacement, ask questions of experts and obtain other critical information necessary to set your city on the path toward compliance. This tele-town hall is part three of a series of tele-town hall events intended to inform local leaders and water utility operators on the implications, requirements and opportunities associated with these rule revisions.
