Coming Soon!

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is in the process of building dedicated webpages for all things lead service line related. These webpages will include helpful documents for creating a lead service line inventory as well as a lead service line replacement plan. Examples of some documents being developed are Frequently Asked Questions, door hangers, bill stuffers, flyers, health effect information and fact sheets. These webpages will also provide links to financial opportunities for financing inventories and replacements with more to come in the future. You will see documents being added to these webpages throughout August, so check back occasionally for additional resources.

Lead Service Line Inventory

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released its Guidance for Developing and Maintaining a Service Line Inventory on Aug. 4, 2022. This document can also be found on EPA's Revised Lead and Copper Rule webpage. On that webpage is also a link to register for EPA's upcoming webinar about the guidance and template, scheduled for Aug. 10, 2022. 

The department developed a Lead Service Line Inventory spreadsheet, which will be the required reporting form for each public water system. The department will provide that document as soon as we ensure it is consistent with federal guidance. To help public water systems avoid unneeded or additional inventory efforts, do not use EPA's inventory spreadsheet for reporting to the department.
