Lane Plating Works, Inc., Superfund Site Virtual Community Meeting, 1/28/2021

EPA, in cooperation with the Lane Plating Community Advisory Group (LP CAG), will hold a virtual community meeting and site status update for the Lane Plating Works Inc. site. As we navigate our way through this unique time, the health and safety of our staff, contractors, and the communities we serve is our top priority. As a result, EPA and its Superfund site teams are conducting virtual meetings in lieu of in-person public meeting events to reflect current COVID-19 guidance from federal, state, tribal, and local officials to discourage gatherings of more than 10 people at a time.

During the virtual public meeting, EPA staff and the LP CAG will provide information and update the public about the status of the site with a presentation on site documents that include the Ecological Risk Assessment, Human Health Risk Assessment, and the Remedial Investigation. This will be followed up with a question and answer session.
