The City of Columbus' Division of Water seeks regulatory flexibility in compliance with the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) promulgated under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Specifically, the City proposes to increase funds needed to implement a comprehensive Lead-Safe Columbus Program designed to identify and reduce lead hazards as an alternative to the LCR requirements for testing and replacement of lead service lines. The Program's interventions are targeted to children who are at most risk for lead poisoning and are targeted at those exposure pathways that would have the greatest impact on a child's body-lead burden. The Lead Safe Columbus Program is expected to provide greater public health protection from lead exposure in Columbus' community, at an equivalent or lower cost than would be obtained by strict adherence to the LCR requirements by focusing on the predominant causative agent.
