Water systems, utilities, facility managers, and plumbers now have a guide to help in transitioning to new regulations enacted through the Safe Drinking Water Act. Flows.com, a leading online distributor of flow system components announced today the publication of the whitepaper, “Wading through the New Lead-Free Laws Guide to the Safe Water Drinking Act”. The whitepaper is available as an eBook from the Flows.com online store.
Topics covered in the whitepaper include:
- Lead contamination in drinking water
- Safe Drinking Water Act
- Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act of 2011
- Exemptions created by the Reduction of Lead in the Drinking Water Act
- Water meters
- State and local laws
“To avoid still fines, administrative orders, or legal action, water systems and utilities must audit their drinking water systems to determine their compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act,” said Flows.com chief engineer Michael Farrell.
“Homes built prior to 1986 frequently used lead pipes and plumbing material, and these homes may no longer be up to the standards of the latest amendments to the Safe Drinking Water Act,” cautions Michelle Farrell, the author of the whitepaper.
“ The Environmental Protection A (EPA) latest amendment is codified as the “Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act of 2011”, provides more stringent guidelines for pipes, flux, solder, fixtures and fittings for potable water,” Michael Farrell adds.
