As winter approaches, EPA has shut down most sampling and cleanup activities in the residential areas near the USS Lead Superfund site. Sampling, excavation and restoration will resume in the spring. In the meantime, EPA will continue to update local public information repositories with site documents, present community workshops on the Superfund Program and mail updates to residents.
