Proposed Lead Regulations - Stakeholder Meeting
These proposed revisions to the 2011 proposed lead regulations continue to be available for informal public review. Due to the considerable interest in these regulations and the number of comments DDOE received on its officially proposed 2011 lead regulations, DDOE held a stakeholder meeting on April 18, 2012, to discuss the draft revisions. Some 30 interested parties attended and provided helpful input. DDOE is currently considering what changes to make to the 2012 draft revisions, which continue to be available here for informal review. Once those changes have been made, DDOE will then formally issue its 2012 version of proposed lead regulations, for official public review and comment.
