Abstract: Requirements of the Lead and Copper Rule (U.S. EPA) makes it necessary for regulators, consultants, and water purveyors to understand the fundamental relationships between water quality and lead leaching from lead based plumbing materials. This paper will address the basic concepts of water chemistry as they apply to the control of lead corrosion.
