EPA Optimal Corrosion Control Treatment Regional Training Workshops

EPA hosted face-to-face regional training workshops throughout 2016-2017 on optimal corrosion control treatment (OCCT). These workshops were held at each of the EPA Regions and were intended for primacy agency staff and technical assistance providers. They provided an overview of the Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) and an in-depth understanding of the OCCT review and approval process from the primacy agency’s perspective.

The trainings featured material from EPA's 2016 "Optimal Corrosion Control Evaluation Technical Recommendations for States and Public Water Systems" below.
