What is it?

This bill deals with fire hydrants and lead in drinking water. In 2010, Congress approved the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act. That Act's aim was to reduce the amount of lead in plumbing fixtures and pipes that deliver water for human consumption. This Act's new regulations became effective on January 4th, 2014. In October of 2013, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)applied the same lead-reduciton requirement to fire hydrants. This bill would exempt fire hydrants from such requirements. 


The bill impacts EPA guidelines as they relate to fire hydrants.
