FALL WEBINARS


Overview of Service Line Replacement and CDSMI-Minimum Services Line Material Verification Requirements (Recorded 9/9/2021, 1 hr. 37 min)

This session will focus on helping public water supplies understand the requirements and  how compliance is achieved with the Service Line Replacement (SLR) requirements under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act (Act 399) and the recently released Complete Distribution System Materials Inventory (CDSMI) minimum service line materials verification  requirements.

This webinar is intended for community water supplies that have distribution systems with service lines that contain lead, galvanized previously connected to lead, or unknown materials. However, all interested parties are welcome to attend.


All Things Water Quality Parameters (WQPs) (Recorded 9/14/21, 1 hr. 26 min.)

Beginning July 1, 2019, under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act, small and medium public water supplies with corrosion control treatment were required to sample for a suite of WQPs corresponding to their treatment method at the entry point to the distribution system (EPTDS) and at a minimum number of sites in the distribution system based on their population. This training session will cover all things related to WQP monitoring and reporting including: what are WQPs and their purpose; where, when, and how to monitor; reporting requirements; designated OWQP ranges and excursion days; and compliance is determination.

This webinar is intended for public water supplies that conduct water quality parameter monitoring because they have corrosion control treatment or have triggered WQP monitoring due to an Action Level exceedance or change in source water or treatment. However, all interested parties are welcome to attend.


Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) Compliance Reporting  (recorded 9/21/2021, 1 hr. 15 min.)

This webinar will explain requirements and deadlines for public water system reporting Lead and Copper drinking water results after a scheduled monitoring round is complete. EGLE staff will guide drinking water operators through the Lead and Copper Report forms for timely completeness, so that water supplies maintain compliance for lead and copper under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act.

This webinar is intended for community water supplies that have completed lead and copper compliance monitoring and need to report results to EGLE and its customers. However, all interested parties are welcome to attend.
