Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act
The Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act was signed into law by the President of the United States on January 4, 2011. The new law takes effect on January 4, 2014. This new law is having a profound impact on the use of waterworks brass in the drinking water industry.
This amendment to the Clean Drinking Water Act will reduce the allowable lead content in any brass products that touch the wetted surfaces in potable drinking water systems. The reduction in lead content is very dramatic, from levels as high as 8 percent down to 0.25 percent.
Team E.J. Prescott, a leading supplier of waterworks brass products, stands ready to help you put a plan in place to go lead free well in advance of the 2014 deadline. Company leadership has established an April 2, 2012 deadline for its compliance with this new law.
