After nearly 20 years of compliance, the Town of Ipswich was unable to meet the requirements of the Lead and Copper Rule during their 2014 sampling round. Since the violation, Ipswich has retained a consultant to analyze the situation. Working together, we have identified the cause of the violation and developed an action plan. With approval from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, Ipswich has implemented the corrective measures and conducted sampling in March and September 2016. Both rounds of sampling were compliant. Ipswich is now in full compliance with the EPA Lead and Copper Rule.
September 2016 sampling round met EPA compliance parameters. Ipswich is now in full compliance with EPA's Lead and Copper Rule.
March 2016 sampling round met EPA compliance parameters. A follow-up round of sampling will be conducted in September. Should this next round be compliant, Ipswich will return to full compliance with EPA's Lead and Copper Rule.
