Historical Documents

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.

Although developed to support implementation of the 2000 revisions to the LCR, these guidance documents are still relevant for public water systems and states.

Files for Appendix D of the Public Education Guidance
Appendix D provides template mailers/brochures for Community Water Systems (CWS) and Non-transient Non-community Water Systems (NTNCWS) in PDF format. Systems have the option of writing in their system-specific information or Downloading these documents. We are offering several versions of these mailers/brochures because the Lead and Copper Rule - Minor Revisions (LCRMR) language can vary for water systems that do not have lead service lines and/or building permit records available (i.e., systems may be able to omit the public education language that pertains to these subjects).
