ABSTRACT
The article presents answers to several questions related to Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) Revisions in the U.S. In 1991, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the LCR to minimize exposure to lead and copper in drinking water. In January 2000, the EPA adopted the Lead and Copper Rule Minor Revisions, which streamline requirements, promote consistent national implementation, and, in many cases, reduce burdens for water systems. The revisions specify the number and locations of tap water-sampling sites. They spell out what will trigger resampling for composite source water samples. The effective date of LCR revisions is April 11, 2000.
