What is CTEC?

Welcome to buttectec.org, established and maintained by the Citizens Technical Environmental Committee (CTEC) of Butte, Montana to serve as a public resource for information and scientific data about Butte and Silver Bow Creek area Superfund sites, as well as associated environmental issues and sites related to historic mining and smelting.

The goal of this site, as with all of CTEC’s efforts, is to help citizens develop informed questions and become involved in the decision-making process for the ongoing cleanup of mine wastes and related environmental damages in the area.

Environmental cleanup efforts in the area are monumental – it is estimated that over one billion dollars will be spent on reclamation and restoration across more than 120 miles of Montana’s Clark Fork Basin, from Butte to Missoula. The issues are complex, and the environmental impacts are broad – the map below will help to orient you in regards to Superfund sites in western Montana.
