What should I do if all of my service lines were installed after my state's lead ban date?

Working with modern infrastructure? Great! You'll still need to submit an inventory, however this article will walk you through the most efficient way to do so.

If your water system's service lines were installed after your state's lead ban date, an inventory is still required by the Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), however proving your system's non-lead status will be simple with the right documentation. This article outlines the steps to easily submit an all non-lead inventory in the 120Water platform.

💧 The accepted lead ban date varies from state to state, so make sure you verify with your primacy agency what the accepted date is in your state is before proceeding. 

If you have already verified this information and your service lines were installed after the confirmed accepted date, GOOD NEWS! You've come to the right place and this should be a fairly painless task to prepare your inventory. Below is a video, along with step by step instructions on how to submit your inventory. 



Step by Step Instructions:

  1. Navigate to the Inventory Tab click on "Import Service Lines."
  2. Select the template you plan to use to import your locations and service line data. You can use your state's template or the 120Water template. More detailed information on this process can be found here
  3. In the template, add the required location fields: Address Line 1, City, State, and Zip Code. 
  4. Include any additional location and service line information you have or other fields that are marked as required by your state. In this case, since you know your service lines were installed after your state's accepted lead ban date, it is important to complete these fields as follows:
    Template Field: Populate the Following Answers:
    Installed After the Lead Ban Date? Yes
    Installation Date Date you have on record (enter the date in MM/DD/YYYY format or just YYYY if only the year is known and it will default to Jan. 1)
    Material Type Non-lead or the specific material, such as PVC (ensure you follow template guidance)
    Classification Basis Age
  5. Import your data back into your 120Water account. If you have issues or receive errors,        check out this Help Center article to triage or contact support@120water.com.
  6. Upload documentation that outlines your service lines install date. If you have one document that applies to all of your service lines, you can attach it on the State Reporting page under "Attachments". If you have many documents pertaining to specific service line locations, you can attach it to the specific service line record and it will automatically pull into your state submission.

Once you've properly filled out the location, service line, and material details and provided the supporting documentation, your all non-lead inventory is ready for submission! By leveraging this process, you can efficiently fulfill this requirement and begin life after inventory 🎉.
