Portland, ME

The EPA enacted the Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program Rule to protect against lead-based paint hazards associated with renovation, repair, and painting activities. Recent enforcement actions suggest this is an increasing area of focus within the region for the EPA. Failure to comply with the rule can result in severe civil penalties of up to $25,000 per violation per day.

Our environmental team will discuss where the rule applies, who it applies to, and how to comply with the rule.

Please RSVP for this program by July 25.
