The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Montana Environmental Trust Group (METG), Trustee of the Montana Environmental Custodial Trust, are sponsoring a Public Meeting and Open House on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Representatives from EPA and METG will review the draft Corrective Measures Study Report (the CMS Report) for the East Helena Smelter Site. The CMS Report, prepared by METG, describes the remedial action alternatives for addressing contamination in soil, groundwater, surface water and sediments from the former ASARCO Smelter in East Helena. The meeting will provide the public with an important opportunity to learn about and comment on the CMS Report. The open house will feature informational exhibits about cleanup, redevelopment and community programs and activities.
The CMS Report will be available to the public for review and comment after Wednesday, March 28, 2018. To download a copy of the CMS Report, view this page. Copies of the CMS Report can also be viewed at the East Helena Branch of the Lewis & Clark County Library (16 East Main Street, East Helena) and the East Helena City Hall (306 East Main Street, Room 201, East Helena). Comments on the CMS Report may be provided orally at the public meeting or submitted in writing to the EPA Project Manager, Betsy Burns, by email (to email@example.com) or by regular mail (to EPA Region 8 Montana Office, 10 W. 15th St., Suite 3200; Helena, MT 59626).
