The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently updated guidelines for lead and copper monitoring by public drinking water providers throughout the country. The new guidelines are known as the Lead and Copper Rule Revision (LCRR).

Currently, Arlington Water Utilities records do not indicate any lead service lines in the portion of the water distribution system owned by the City. However, to achieve compliance with the LCRR, Arlington Water Utilities must verify whether lead materials are in any city-owned water service lines and create an inventory of that information by October 2024. The City must also create a similar inventory of the privately-owned water service lines, or pipes, which run from the water meter to the entrance to the home or business.
