CHALLENGE: 
EPA's Revised Lead & Copper Rule

By 2024, public water systems will need a complete inventory of Lead Service Lines and a plan to replace them. With limited resources, water systems face a massive undertaking and require innovative solutions to ensure everyone has access to safe drinking water.

SOLUTION: 
Innovative data & work management

Innovation is critical to expediting lead removal, remaining compliant, and staying within budget. From creating a Lead Service Line inventory to managing contractors or equitably prioritizing work, Unearth brings clarity to the field.
