Municipal Challenges

Changing legislation around water quality makes the job of providing cleaner water for communities even more complex. Municipalities have to be responsive and adaptable to new government guidelines and meet the mandates imposed by federal and state regulations. On top of that, they have to contend with structural obstacles like existing lead service lines that can potentially contaminate water before it reaches a home's faucet.

Structural Obstacles

Municipalities have to contend with an aging water infrastructure with high repair costs that prevent them from being fixed quickly to meet evolving EPA standards.

Government Guidelines

Federal and state regulations coming into effect also impose new mandates on municipalities. The Lead and Copper provisions introduced in 2019 look to introduce more stringent guidelines on identifying, monitoring, and replacing lead service lines. It also mandates that pitchers and filters are provided within 24 hours post replacement. Point of Use Filtration, like PUR Pitchers and Faucet Filtration Systems, has been highlighted as an important part of a comprehensive mitigation plan.
