For more information visit https://www.epa.gov/ dwreginfo/lead-and-copper-rule. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Executive Summary EPA’s lead drinking water rules are a critical part of reducing the lead exposure for consumers of tap water in the United States. Lead poses serious health risks to both children and adults. Because lead in drinking water primarily results from leaching of lead from plumbing in homes and from lead service lines (lead pipes connecting homes to the water distribution system), and portions of lead service lines may be owned by the water system or homeowner, the drinking water rules intended to reduce the amount of lead in tap water have been complex and controversial. The latest version of those rules, the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), published in January 2021, is no exception. In compliance with the Biden Administration executive order to review rules issued in the past PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Administration, EPA undertook an extensive review of the LCRR and delayed the effective and compliance dates in the rule during the review period. To get comprehensive input, EPA talked with states, tribes, water utilities, as well as people who have been underrepresented in past rulemaking efforts. EPA sought input from communities disproportionately impacted by lead in drinking water, especially lower-income people and communities of color, to learn from their experiences. The broad range of thoughtful input EPA received provided valuable insights on ways to improve the LCRR, and more generally, other available tools to address lead in drinking water. Based upon EPA’s evaluation and stakeholder feedback, the agency has concluded that EPA actions to protect the public from lead in drinking water should consider the following policy objectives: Replacing 100 percent of lead service lines (LSLs) is an urgently needed action to protect all Americans from the most significant source of lead in drinking water systems; equitably improving public health protection for those who cannot afford to replace the customer-owned portions of their LSLs; improving the methods to identify and trigger action in communities that are most at risk of elevated drinking water lead levels; and exploring ways to reduce the complexity of the regulations. To achieve these policy objectives, EPA intends to take the following regulatory and non-regulatory actions: First, EPA intends to propose for public comment a new rule to revise the LCRR to advance the goals described above while balancing stakeholder interests and incorporating required economic, environmental justice, and other analyses. A regulatory framework that addresses these considerations, combined with the other actions described in this document, has the potential to permanently eliminate the most significant source of lead contamination, better target other actions to reduce lead exposure where the highest risks are presented, and provide equitable protections to all Americans. At the same time, because the LCRR provides additional protections relative to the pre-existing rule and contains components (such as the LSL inventory) that supports any future rule, EPA is not further extending the effective date of the LCRR. Therefore, as explained herein, compliance with certain key provisions of the LCRR will not be delayed while the rulemaking is underway. E:\FR\FM\17DER1.SGM 17DER1
