 120Water and Michigan Rural Water Association Announce New Partnership

 

Collaboration Will Equip Water Systems Across Michigan with Resources and Tools to Comply with Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR)


INDIANAPOLIS & OKEMOS, MI (October 14, 2021) – 120Water and the Michigan Rural Water Association (MRWA) announced a new partnership that will expand the technical assistance and support available to MRWA members, with a focus on equipping systems with tools and resources to successfully manage water quality programs related to lead and other contaminants. The partnership will also expand the resources available to water systems as they prepare to meet new regulatory expectations due to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR).


“120Water’s ability to assist utilities managing lead and drinking water programs will be the first all-encompassing solution available in Michigan. Comprised of secure cloud-based software, services and point of use kits, 120Water provides custom tailored workflows for compliance,” said MRWA Executive Director, Tim Neumann.

 

As the leading end-to-end solution for managing critical lead and drinking water programs, 120Water enables local and state governments, water systems and major facilities to manage water quality and prioritize investments that protect public health. The 120Water solution -- which will be available with preferred pricing to MRWA members -- automates actions needed to meet compliance requirements, such as LCR, and ensures timely and transparent communication with stakeholders and the public.

 

“With potential infrastructure funding and LCR revisions on the horizon, this is a timely partnership to help MRWA members get ahead of the curve,” said Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnership at 120Water. “Providing water professionals with the tools to efficiently operate water quality programs will not only help them meet compliance and access funding opportunities, but to safeguard water quality and protect public health.

 

Michigan water systems interested in learning more about this partnership, preferred pricing, and the resources available to them may contact Lowell Huffman, Director of Partnerships at 120Water.
