Lincoln residents upset over lead
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
contractors have begun collecting samples in preparation for the
scheduled cleanup of an abandoned brass foundry in Lincoln that is
contaminated with lead. Sherryl Carbonaro, an EPA public affairs
specialist said contractors will be at the site this week,
collecting soil samples so an assessment is completed before the
actual cleanup of the hazardous waste site begins. Residents in the
First Avenue Park community of Lincoln just recently discovered high
levels of lead were found at and around the abandoned Lincoln Metals
Corporation/Heartland Faucet site. Residents have voiced concern
about why they were informed about the lead contamination by federal
authorities in May when state officials knew about the contamination
three years ago. An ADEM official defended the agency’s action in
not informing residents of the hazardous waste. Claiming that their
data wasn’t complete. ADEM completed an assessment in 2005,
recommending the removal and proper disposal of the lead
contaminated material. The actual cleanup of the hazardous waste
site is expected to begin before the end of September and should
only take two or three months to complete according to EPA
