Title: The EPA New Proposed Lead and Copper Rule: How It Can Impact Your Business
On December 20, 2020 The EPA Finalized the New Lead and Copper Rule for Domestic Water Systems. The EPA states: "the new rule will protect children families from exposure to Lead in drinking water". This new rule is going to highly impact how the water treatment professional - mostly for answering questions from your clients but also being the expert your client turns to to solve his lead and copper issues and provide your clients the testing that will be necessary to meet the rule. This talk will provide the background of knowledge that the water treatment professional will need to navigate this new regulatory rule.
The talk will discuss:
Jay Farmerie and Mike Highum the present Regulatory Chair will make this presentation
Mr. Farmerie has provided consulting services to industrial, municipal, food processing, milk and cheese processing and institutional organizations in the field of water treatment for more than twenty five years as a technical service engineer, project manager, senior project manager and executive consultant. These responsibilities include solving technical problems brought in by field representatives, assisting with the design of new and existing plants, and interaction with clients’ corporate engineering and executive staffs.
His experience covers a wide range of industrial and municipal water systems especially relating to process boiler system operations, open and closed recirculating cooling water systems, boiler and steam power generating systems, and potable and waste water operations.
The presentation will provide information on the new regulatory requirements of the EPA's new lead and copper rules and the impact the rules will have on the end-users that AWT members service. Because we are all involved in water-related issues, we must be available to provide the end users who we service with information about the rule changes. This could lead to opportunities for the AWT service companies to increase sales and provide other services to an exisiting or new client. This could also help AWT member companies protect current business.
