10:49 EDTMWAMueller Water says hydrant shipments may be impacted by EPA rule
Mueller Water disclosed that in October of this year, the United States Environmental Protection Agency published guidance pertaining to implementation of the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act of 2011, indicating that fire hydrants must meet the reduced lead standards of the Act by January 4, 2014. In response to EPA’s guidance, industry representatives have engaged with EPA regarding the applicability of the Act to fire hydrants and at least one bill has been introduced in Congress to exempt fire hydrants from the Act. Mueller stated, "Although we currently produce and ship fire hydrants that are compliant with the Act and EPA’s guidance, some of our distributors and end users are delaying orders of fire hydrants until further clarity regarding the issue can be obtained. Accordingly, while the timing of our fire hydrant shipments during fiscal 2014 could be impacted on a quarterly basis, at this time, we do not anticipate any impact on our full-year fiscal 2014 results."
