Lead Pipe Maps From Ohio’s Water Systems Are Due to the EPA Thursday – WKSU News

The Ohio EPA is expecting maps of the lead pipes in the state’s water frameworks by tomorrow as a component of a redesign of how Ohio handles lead in drinking water, however just about a portion of the frameworks have gone along up until now. A law passed a year ago obliges them to delineate their frameworks and distinguish lead channels. Ohio EPA representative Heidi Griesmer says the maps are vital for making sense of where frameworks need to focus on testing lead levels later on.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Ohio EPA is expecting maps of the lead pipes in the state’s water systems by tomorrow as part of an overhaul of how Ohio handles lead in drinking water, but only about half of the systems have complied so far.
  • A law passed last year requires them to map out their systems and identify lead pipes. Ohio EPA spokeswoman Heidi Griesmer says the maps are important for helping to figure out where systems need to concentrate on testing lead levels in the future.
  • It’s very important that the water systems have a record of what their infrastructure is.

“Ohio has 1,878 water systems, ranging in size from large cities all the way down to single neighborhoods. A law passed last year requires them to map out their systems and identify lead pipes.”
