On July 19, EPA hosted a virtual roundtable specifically for tribes and tribal communities during which participants discussed topics relating to the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) and provided their unique perspectives to EPA. This roundtable brought together representatives from tribes and tribal communities that may be disproportionately impacted by the challenges of lead in drinking water. EPA encouraged participants who represent tribes and tribal communities including, but not limited to, tribal governments, public water utilities serving Indian country, tribal consortia, and tribally authorized organizations, to consider submitting a nomination letter. EPA requested that interested parties submit their nomination letter by June 16, 2021.
EPA intends to make this roundtable available for viewing to those who are not participating but are interested in listening. EPA will post additional event details on this website as they become available.
