To assist small public water systems (serving a population of 3,300 or less) to meet the lead service line inventory requirement, as required by the federal Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation State Revolving Fund (SRF) Program is making $2,175,676 available in grants towards completion of lead service line inventory projects. The LCRR requires that all Community and Non-Transient Non-Community public water systems must compile an inventory to identify the materials used for each water service line connected to their distribution system, regardless of ownership status of the land where the service line is located. The material of the entire service line must be included, from the main to where the line enters the building. More information about completing lead service line inventories is available on the Division of Environmental Health Drinking Water Program for the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (
