The City of Griffin Water Department is looking for volunteers to participate in the upcoming Lead and Copper sampling as required by the United State Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA) Lead and Copper Rule. The Lead and Copper Rule, 40 C.F.R. Sections 141.80 to 141.91, requires monitoring at the consumer taps to identify levels of lead in drinking water that may result from corrosion of lead-bearing components in a public water system’s distribution system or in household plumbing.These samples help assess the need for, or the effectiveness of, corrosion control treatment.
The City is planning on collecting the required samples in August of 2016. Anyone willing to participate in the upcoming sampling should click the link below to register. All willing participants will be contacted and provided with all supplies necessary for sample collection. We have also provided a link to the EPAs website below for anyone wanting further information.
