Announcements and Key Topics

EPA has targeted the Anaconda Co. Smelter Superfund site for immediate and intense action to expedite cleanup work and redevelopment efforts.

In 2018, EPA is working with health agencies and local partners to conduct an exposure investigation in Anaconda to study health concerns related to site contamination.

EPA is also working with the Anaconda School District to sample all the interiors and yards of Anaconda schools in 2018. Public parks in Anaconda will also be sampled in 2018.

On April 10, 2018 EPA Region 8 Administrator Doug Benevento along with Kel Kelly, EPA’s Senior Advisor to the Administrator, attended a public meeting at Old Works Golf Course to follow up on commitments made in November 2017 to sample schools and conduct a public health study. Mr. Benevento presented the community with EPA’s strategy for negotiating a consent decree to get the rest of the work completed at the site, addressed the county and community’s questions, interests and needs, and announced how the deletion process would begin.
