Institutional Control Steering Committee

{slider title=”IC Steering Committee Information” open=”false”}

Background:
On May 10, 2017, the City-County Board of Health appointed 6 members to the IC Steering Committee in addition to appointing a committee Chairperson and Vice-chair. The purpose of the IC Steering Committee is to participate in the development of Institutional Controls (ICs) for the Libby Superfund Site, primarily by providing input  for consideration in drafting the ICs, and commenting on proposed documents and policies.  (ICs will be implemented as part of the Operation and Maintenance Phase to protect the EPA remedy and provide long-term management of Libby amphibole asbestos that remains in-place after cleanup is complete.) Primary technical and administrative support is provided by the Lincoln County Asbestos Resource Program (ARP).
