Residential Metals Abatement Program

Goals and Objectives:  Superfund; Residential Metals Abatement Program:

This Program is designed to mitigate potentially harmful exposures of residents living within the Butte Priority Soils Operable Unit and Adjacent Attic Dust Area to sources of lead, arsenic, and mercury.  An emphasis is placed on protecting children six years of age or less, and pregnant women.  This is accomplished through:

Sampling of residential soils, paint, attic dust and indoor dust.
Blood lead sampling for children and adults through the WIC Program.
Education to the general public, contractors, realtors, etc. on lead, arsenic, and mercury.
Data management and tracking of blood lead levels.
Abatement of soils, attic dust, paint, and/or indoor dust if sampling exceeds action levels.

This Program is 100% funded through an Allocation Agreement with Atlantic Richfield Company.
