Proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions Published in Federal Register

The proposed Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) were published in today’s (11/13) Federal Register. Comments are due to EPA by January 13, 2020, and can be submitted at ASDWA encourages primacy agencies (and other stakeholders) to submit their own comments to EPA, in addition to ASDWA’s comments. ASDWA, and possibly some other drinking water stakeholders, are planning to request a 30-day extension to the comment period due the complexity of the proposed revisions and potential impacts to primacy agencies from implementing the LCRR in the future.

Also in today’s (11/13) Federal Register is a notice of a meeting of the National Drinking Water Advisory Council (NDWAC) on December 4-5 at EPA in Washington, D.C. The NDWAC will be briefed on EPA’s drinking water program for fiscal year 2020 and will consult on the proposed perchlorate rule and the proposed LCRR.
