Print Article

The Libby Asbestos Oversight Committee is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 19, in the Lincoln County Courthouse, 512 California Avenue in Libby.

The Oversight Committee was established by the 2017 Legislature to enhance communication among stakeholders of the Libby Asbestos Superfund Cleanup. In addition, the Team advises the Department of Environmental Quality 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 the Environmental Protection Agency 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.
