AWWA Launches Lead Information Resource Webpage for Water Professionals

From the national American Water Works Association (AWWA)…

With the crisis in Flint, Michigan vaulting lead risks into the public consciousness, the American Water Works Association has launched a web-based Lead Resource Community accessible to water professionals, media and the general public.

The Lead Resource Community, available at, provides a place for water utilities to gain insight and guidance on lead service lines, the Lead and Copper Rule, corrosion control and other lead management issues. It also includes a news feed, public statements, legislative and regulatory developments and research on lead in water.

“The water community and public health experts have collaborated for many years to reduce lead risks in water, and there is still more work to do,” said AWWA CEO David LaFrance. “The Lead Resource Community brings the latest technical and public policy developments together in one place.”
