Lead and Copper in Public Water Systems

The Ohio Legislature amended Ohio Revised Code Chapter 6109, adopting new requirements related to lead and copper for public water systems and certified laboratories. The new requirements charge Ohio EPA with reviewing standards for lead and copper monitoring, requiring more timely public notification of monitoring results, and ensuring public water systems optimize corrosion control treatment. The following web links address some of the recent changes, direct public water systems to required reporting forms, and provide additional resources.

Application for Triennial Lead and Copper Monitoring

It is the obligation of the Public Water System to provide as much documentation as possible for all parts of the Application for Triennial Lead and Copper Monitoring to increase the likelihood of qualification for reduced (triennial) monitoring going forward. Public water systems with incomplete, irrelevant, or unsubstantiated applications will be set to an annual monitoring requirement for lead and copper starting this year.
