Lead and Copper Rule Explained
The Lead and Copper Rule is an EPA regulation established as a tool to protect public drinking water. The rule sets a maximum contaminant level goal of zero. Additionally, it requires public water systems to employ a treatment technique that reduces corrosion of plumbing materials that contain lead and copper. Lastly, this rule regulates the amount of lead and copper allowed in public drinking water at the tap.
What Makes the Rule so Important?
Lead and copper in our drinking water can lead to significant health problems. These health problems range from a simple stomachache to significant brain damage. Furthermore, prevention is tricky as copper and lead contamination in our drinking water is caused by corrosion in our piping. Thus, this contaminant can easily become a major concern.
