EPA is requesting comments from the public on a proposed plan for cleanup of the Anaconda Regional Water, Waste and Soils Operable Unit (OU4) of the Anaconda Co. Smelter Superfund site.
- Waiving the State of Montana’s acute and aquatic life surface water criteria for cadmium, copper, lead and zinc for upper Willow Creek and its tributaries and the tributaries of upper Mill Creek;
- Maintaining federal water quality criteria as the applicable surface water standard; and
- Expanding and enhancing the current upland remedies to minimize source contamination to surface waters that would result in exceedances of water quality standards.
Copies of the proposed plan are available at the site information repositories and at EPA's Anaconda Co. Smelter website:
Arrowhead Foundation Library
118 East Seventh Street
Anaconda, MT 59711
