Ogden, Karen 0 2278

The Libby Asbestos Superfund Advisory Team, which first convened in September, will hold its second meeting Monday, Dec. 18, from 2-4 p.m. at the Montana Department of Environmental Quality in Helena. The team was established by the 2017 Legislature under Senate Bill 315 to enhance communication among stakeholders of the Libby Asbestos Superfund Cleanup. In addition, the Advisory Team will advise Montana DEQ on administration of the Libby Asbestos Cleanup Trust Fund and operation and maintenance accounts. As cleanup nears its end in many of the Operable Units of the Libby Asbestos Site, Montana DEQ and EPA will work with the Advisory Team to establish institutional controls and define operations and maintenance activities appropriate to protect the cleanup in Libby.
