(Boston, Mass. – Dec. 20, 2011) – This week the Rhode Island Army National Guard (RIARNG) has begun installation of a Corrosion Control Treatment System to comply with the requirements of the federal Lead and Copper Rule at its base located in Coventry, R.I.

This past October the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency entered into an Administrative Order on Consent (AOC) with the RIARNG to resolve violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act at its Coventry facility. EPA entered into the AOC with the RIARNG due to the failure to install optimal corrosion control treatment and comply with the sampling requirements identified in the Lead and Copper Rule. The failure to install optimal corrosion control treatment has caused the facility to exceed the action levels established under the Safe Drinking Water Act for lead and copper.
