120Water hires director of water quality and compliance

Committed to the mission of providing innovative solutions to water professionals, 120Water announced it is welcoming Jonathan Cuppett as director of water quality compliance.

A critical role in navigating the complex landscape of the evolving Lead and Copper Rule Revisions (LCRR), Cuppett will be instrumental in monitoring federal and state compliance requirements and providing relevant regulatory insight to the 120Water team. 120Water will use this information to further customize its software solutions to help utilities across the country meet expanding regulatory requirements.

Cuppett brings extensive experience and comprehensive expertise to the 120Water executive team. For the last 13 years, Cuppett worked at The Water Research Foundation (WRF) developing trusted relationships with utilities, NGOs, and other stakeholders while managing more than $25 million of projects across the water industry. A recognized subject matter expert on LCRR, Cuppett managed WRF’s LCRR research portfolio and has repeatedly presented his insights to prominent industry organizations including the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators (ASDWA), and Water Environment Federation (WEF).

“Jonathan is a very familiar face within this industry, and a welcome addition to the 120Water team,” said Megan Glover, co-founder and CEO of 120Water. “As the LCRR presents new challenges to utilities, our role is to provide new solutions. Water utility operators are in search of tailored, turnkey strategies to streamline their compliance, and Jonathan’s breadth of regulatory knowledge and awareness of the unique challenges faced by water systems will be invaluable as we continue to grow, innovate, and improve.”

Deeply involved in both the water industry and his community, Cuppett has served as a member of the AWWA Lead and Copper Rule Technical Advisory Workgroup and the AWWA Lead in Water Subcommittee. He is based in Crested Butte, Colorado.
