Libby Asbestos Superfund Oversight Committee to meet Monday June 24

HELENA – The Libby Asbestos Superfund Oversight Committee will meet Monday, June 24, at 1:30 p.m. The meeting will be held in Helena in Room 111 of the Montana Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) Lee Metcalf Building at 1520 East 6th Ave., and in Libby at the Lincoln County Courthouse, 512 California Ave. Attendees also may participate remotely by phone and online.


The Team was established by the 2017 Legislature to enhance communication among Libby Asbestos Superfund cleanup stakeholders. In addition, the Team will advise 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 Team and the community to establish institutional controls and define operations and maintenance activities appropriate to protect the cleanup in Libby.
