Lead Service Line Replacement Collaborative: Lead Service Lines Get Flushed

Register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lead-service-line-replacement-collaborative-lead-service-lines-get-flushed-registration-54419141116

When: Wednesday, February 6, 2019 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET

What: Lead enters drinking water when water is stagnant in contact with lead.  Flushing, to cleanse or wash out with a rush of water, plays a role in reducing lead exposure, before, as part of, and following lead service line replacement.  The webinar speakers will describe the roles of flushing, strategies for flushing for specific purposes, and example community-specific communication efforts to encourage effective flushing.  Research is ongoing to improve our understanding of flushing practices.  This webinar will capture the latest information from these research efforts.

Speakers:

  • Amanda Reddy, Executive Director, National Center for Healthy Housing (moderator)
  • Lynn Thorp, Campaigns Director, Clean Water Action
  • David Cornwell, President, Cornwell Engineering Group

Mapping LSLs: Charting a Path to Engage a Community

Register: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mapping-lead-service-lines-charting-a-path-to-engage-a-community-registration-54599432372

When: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET

What: Communities and states are increasingly turning to interactive maps to complement their lead service line communications by showing what is known about specific addresses or about specific community water systems. This webinar will explore how they are developing these maps, wrestling with the uncertainties, and striving to ensure they are effective communication tools. We will have presentations from states and mid-sized communities who have recently posted online maps to share their experience and provide an overview of options and the latest research.

Moderator:   

  • Stephanie Schlea, Manager, Regulatory and Scientific Affairs, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies
