Notice of a Public Meeting: Regulations Implementing Section 1417 
of the Safe Drinking Water Act: Prohibition on Use of Lead Pipes, 
Solder and Flux

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Notice of a public meeting.


SUMMARY: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces a

The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) prohibits the use or introduction 
into commerce of pipes, pipe or plumbing fittings or fixtures, solder 
and flux that are not lead free. These revisions are necessary due to 
SDWA amendments enacted by Congress in the Reduction of Lead in 
Drinking Water Act of 2011 and the Community Fire Safety Act of 2013.
