NATIONAL IMPACTS FROM DC'S LEAD EXPERIENCE
Abstract:The elevated lead concentrations found in the District of Columbia's drinking water distribution system in 2004 gained national attention, and refocused the attention of the U.S.EPA on corrosion control, the public health implications of trace metals, and conflicting drinking water regulations. The progressive approach taken by DC WASA to study and control the issue has provided a new understanding of corrosion chemistry and corrosion monitoring, and a new way to look at simultaneous compliance. This presentation will provide an interpretation of the events that occurred within the District, the national impact of those events, and resulting advances in corrosion science.
