The new EPA Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) revision (announced December 16, 2021), public water systems have more work and proactive planning to do. The LCR now requires municipalities to develop a lead and copper service line inventory by October 16, 2024. Ultimately, all communities will need to remove lead and copper contamination from their water systems. A working lead and copper pipe inventory is the essential groundwork for any effective removal and replacement plan. Now is the time to proactively create a water main and service line inventory not only to be compliant with the EPA’s timeline, but also to prioritize the health and safety of their community.


Completing an inventory by identifying lead and copper pipe in a water system will be key in replacing the lead service lines. As an ESRI® Partner and using ESRI® software, Sunrise has created solutions to provide enhanced insight into your water system. Sunrise can incorporate the city’s managed ArcGIS online systems to include lead and copper inventory of service lines. Easy-to-use tools for editing and viewing, giving the user the ability to share this information with operations staff, city councils, board members, and decision makers. The data will offer:


  • Focused inventory of maintenance and repair recommendations
  • A comprehensive long-term work and budget plan
  • Water system visualization
  • Administration of service line information
  • Lead service replacement coordination
  • Management dashboards
  • Public information and community involvement tools
  • Mobile access to manage water assets
  • Detailed mapping and resource identification
  • Establish high risk areas
  • Prioritize replacement efforts
