“The purpose of human life is to serve and to show compassion and the will to help others.” -Albert Schweitzer. Currently in the United States environmental activists are trying to ban bottled water. Their reasons are very understandable. Water bottles spend years in land waste facilities after being used, and this is bad for the environment, but, people depend on the manufacturing of bottled water.

Introduction Regulations are created to protect the health and welfare of the public. The United States EPA develops the regulations at a federal level and each state’s EPA has the ability to make regulations pertaining to their state. The criteria for a state’s individual regulation are that it must be at least as strict as the federal regulation. The purpose of this paper is to examine the general requirements of the Lead and Copper Rule (with attention on the lead aspect) mandated to protect drinking water on the federal and state level. Federal Regulation The Lead and Copper Rule (LCR) was created June 7, 1991 and is found in 40 CFR 141 (USEPA, 2011).
