ARWA Training Class

Lead and Copper Materials Inventory Training

This training will cover how to conduct a Materials Inventory list for compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule. Corrosion Control can be essential to maintaining compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule. We will have instructors on hand to discuss corrosion control optimization, and cost effective measures in maintaining corrosion control. After attending this class, participants should be thoroughly familiar with the methods for selecting sites for Lead and Copper Testing within your distribution system, and different methods for corrosion control.

Lead and Copper Update 

ADEM has issued new regulations updating the state's lead and copper rules for public drinking water systems. These updates aim to strengthen monitoring requirements, improve corrosion control treatment, and enhance public education efforts to reduce exposure to lead and copper from aging pipes and plumbing components. Water utilities must comply with the revised testing protocols and treatment standards to better protect public health.
