Lead and Copper Rule, Corrosion Control

AWWA has resources available to help members address customer concerns and to provide guidance in assessing water quality in order to maintain public health and safety. Here are some AWWA and other resources to help you address questions or concerns that may arise in your community. The Section encourages members to direct consumers to follow directions closely when deciding to use a household filter since effectiveness of filters can vary based on use.
