Highlights of the proposals:

  • MI to have toughest lead testing rules in nation (go beyond EPA)
  • Utilities required to test all schools, daycares, nursing homes, etc
  • MI move to limit of 10 ppb by 2020
  • Water systems have 2 days instead of 30 to tell individual customers that lead levels exceed action level
  • Annual testing instead of every 3 years
  • Systems required to fully replace old(?) pipes within 10 years
  • Partial replacement of service line would be prohibited
  • The workgroup “purposely did not take funding into account”
