Discussion of the results of analysis of data submitted to the Office of Drinking Water since publication of the proposed lead and copper rule in August of 1988. The analysis found that corrosion control treatments such as the use of corrosion inhibitors and adjustment of pH were associated with lower lead levels at the tap than water not subject to such treatment. The data generally support the effectiveness of the corrosion control treatments as a means of reducing tap lead levels.
