Mass RRP Takeover Causes Contractor Headaches and Confusion

Posted by Mark Paskell on Wed, Aug 04, 2010 @ 10:37 AM

The recent Massachusetts takeover (7/9/2010) of the EPA RRP Lead Law is causing widespread headaches and confusion among contractors in the state. We have spoke with many lumberyards and building officials who are not aware of the changes. Many still believe that the EPA Memo of 6/18/2010, delaying enforcement of fines, is still in effect in Massachusetts. This is not the case.

This change has caught many with their pants down and exposed to fines and work stoppages if they are caught.
