The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the proposed Lead and Copper Rule Improvements (LCRI), which would require water systems across the country to replace lead service lines within 10 years, with limited exceptions. Notably, the proposed LCRI does not mandate the responsibility of utilities to replace household lead pipes that belong to the homeowner. Nevertheless, the proposed LCRI strengthens key elements of the rule in three main focus areas: replacing lead service lines, reducing complexity for public health protection, and increasing transparency and informing the public.


Key provisions in the proposal include:

  1. Achieving 100% Lead Pipe Replacement within 10 years. The proposed LCRI would require the vast majority of water systems to replace lead services lines within 10 years.
  2. Locating Legacy Lead Pipes. Under the proposed LCRI, all water systems would be required to regularly update their inventories, create a publicly available service line replacement plan, and identify the materials of all service lines of unknown material.
  3. Improving Tap Sampling. The proposed LCRI would make key changes to the protocol that water systems must use for tap sampling informed by best practices already being deployed at the local and state level.
  4. Lowering the Lead Action Level. EPA is proposing to lower the lead action level from 15 µg/L to 10 µg/L. This would require more water systems to take interim measures to control corrosion and provide public education. For example, when a water system’s lead sampling exceeds the action level, the system would be required to inform the public and take action to reduce lead exposure while concurrently working to replace all lead pipes.
  5. Strengthening Protections to Reduce Exposure. Water systems with multiple lead action level exceedances would be required to conduct additional outreach to consumers and make filters certified to reduce lead available to all consumers. The filters must be certified to reduce lead.

The proposal would also require water systems to communicate more frequently and proactively with consumers about lead service lines and the system’s plans for replacing the lines.

The EPA has published a rule summary and general questions and answers on the proposed LCRI, which can be found here. The pre-publication version of the proposed rule can be found here and is also attached. A fact sheet can be found here and is also attached.

Public Input and Participation 


EPA invites members of the public to review the proposed LCRI and supporting information and once published in the Federal Register, provide written comments in the public docket associated with this rulemaking at, Docket ID Number: EPA-HQ-OW-2022-0801.

Additionally, EPA will host an informational webinar for the public on December 6, 2023 about the proposed LCRI. Interested parties can register here. EPA will also hold a virtual public hearing on January 16, 2024, at which the public will be invited to provide EPA with verbal comments. Interested parties can register here.

Associate Member Rene Alvarez of CIC Hotaling Insurance has asked that we share the message below.

For those municipalities that are not currently members and under the FMIT- Florida Municipal Insurance Trust program, now is the best time to reach out to FMIT or Rene Alvarez and request Property, Casualty and Workers Compensation comparison quotes.  Either through an RFP or direct proposal request- insurance quotes will be effective starting on 10/1 and available in early July, so you can budget accordingly.
