In this letter, members of the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) comment on U.S. EPA’s proposed National Primary Drinking Water Regulations for Lead and Copper: Improvements (LCRI).
ECOS encourages additional resources for states to adjust to the proposed LCRI requirements. ECOS suggests that U.S. EPA develop timely guidance for states on messaging and implementation and further engage with states on data management. ECOS also offers ideas for strategic targeted filter distribution and lead sampling requirements. The results of these revisions will affect the state and territorial water programs that will implement the changes, and ECOS advocates for the position of the states as a group.
