EPA Seeking Speakers for LCRR Public Listening Sessions

On Wednesday, March 31, EPA announced two virtual public listening sessions to ensure that communities and stakeholders have the opportunity to provide their perspectives to the agency on protections from lead in drinking water. The goal of public engagement is to obtain further input on EPA’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), including from individuals and communities that are most at-risk of exposure to lead in drinking water.

Virtual public listening sessions will be held on April 28, and May 5, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., EDT, with slots for over 400 speakers! EPA is looking for speakers to fill the 3-minute speaking slots and those interested in speaking can sign up for a speaking slot on EPA’s website here. During this event, members of the public will be provided the opportunity to speak their mind and to share their thoughts and concerns about the impact of lead in their community through lead in drinking water in the context of the LCRR. EPA will be conducting its review of the LCRR through the summer of 2021, so take advantage of this opportunity to provide your input!
