Rhode Island, 120Water partner to support state-wide digital lead service line database

(UI) – The state of Rhode Island selected digital water testing and data management platform 120Water to manage the lead service line inventories for all water systems across the state.

By procuring 120Water’s Public Water System (PWS) Portal and State Dashboard software, all eligible Rhode Island water utilities will now have access to tools designed to digitally collect, store, manage, and report on lead service line inventory data in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR) and federal and state reporting requirements.

“We are proud to be the state of Rhode Island’s partner as they equip their utilities with best-in-class software to efficiently and affordably modernize and streamline the compliance reporting process for utilities in their state,” said Megan Glover, co-founder and CEO of 120Water. “It’s our mission to protect public health by providing software, services, and products that drinking water professionals use to execute water quality compliance programs across the United States.”

The LCRR requires utilities nationwide to compile a location-based inventory of service line materials by Oct. 16, 2024. 120Water’s PWS Portal provides a standardized tool to normalize, validate, and manage service line data before it is uploaded to the State Dashboard for ongoing compliance management, significantly alleviating the time and resource strain on utilities – many of which are already operating at maximum capacity.

120Water is working with the Rhode Island Department of Health to distribute licenses, communications, and training to onboard all eligible systems. Additional training support will be provided through 120Water’s recent partnership with the Rhode Island Rural Water Association.

This statewide contract is preceded by partnerships with six other states including Indiana, Georgia, Arizona, and Delaware as well as the City of Newark, the City of Providence, the City of Buffalo, Chicago Public Schools and the Cherokee Nation.
