In 2013 at the WQA Aquatech conference in Indianapolis, I was asked to address the sometimes confusing EPA ‘Lead and Copper Rule’ and how it applies to drinking water quality; specifically to help attendees begin to understand the causes and  impact of corrosion in potable water systems, as well as provide some insight on how to treat it.

Handouts from the presentation are available below:

Naturally, corrosion-control is an art and a science, and not necessarily for the faint-hearted. At Red Fox Advisors, My associates and I have helped many water treatment dealers, as well as commercial/industrial operators in addressing complex corrosion issues. Contact me if you need help with an application.
