The EPA will proceed with implementing new lead remediation guidelines in East Helena



Helena, Montana – The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the United States declared that it will establish new lead-cleaning guidelines for East Helena.

The EPA says the new standard “will lower the soil-lead cleanup level at the East Helena Superfund Site from 500 ppm (parts per million) to 400 ppm and remove the 1,000 ppm cleanup action level.”

The initiative received resounding public approval, according to the EPA.

The former Record of Decision from 2009 is replaced with the new plan.

Now, later in 2024, the EPA plans to start contract support for yard cleanups.

Under the terms of the prior Record of Decision, the EPA has already cleaned hundreds of East Helena properties.
