EPA issues water quality guidance for lead and copper

WASHINGTON � In an effort to control safety standards in drinking water, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a guidance format to help clarify how the collection and management of lead and copper samples is conducted, according to an EPA news release.

"This guidance is the direct result of working with our national drinking water partners to provide clarity on critical elements in implementing our regulations that help safeguard the public's drinking water," Ben Grumbles, acting assistant administrator for water, said in the release. "Early next year, we will determine if the lead rule needs additional guidance or some targeted changes."
