Untapping the Crowd: Consumer Detection and Control of Lead in Drinking Water, EPA, 05/2018-05/2022, M. Edwards (PI), K. Pieper, A. Katner, C. Cooper, E. Berglund

This project will create a consumer-centric framework to detect and control lead in drinking water that will complement the utility-centric framework embodied in the Lead and Copper Rule. The project will leverage citizen participation in data collection, develop predictive models that identify areas of vulnerability to high water lead and empower consumers with interventions to control risk.
