Butte’s Citizen’s Environmental Technical Committee (CTEC) is excited to announce the third of a series of public meetings that seeks to incorporate the concerns of area residents in the second in a series of Health Study and Biomonitoring Assessments required at five-year intervals by Butte-Silver Bow’s Residential Metals Abatement Program. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 26, from 6:00 – 8:30 PM at the Butte Brewing Co located at 465 East Galena in Butte. Atlantic Richfield is generously providing food and refreshments.
The meeting will be conducted in a workshop format, beginning with Dr. Bill Macgregor, a long-time active CTEC member and recently retired MTech professor, leading a community discussion on public health concerns. Dr. Macgregor will describe how the discussion is part of a broad research effort that relies on funding from the National Institutes of Health in a partnership with Montana Tech to comprehensively define public health concerns perceptions expressed by the community and public health professionals. Working Group members from the U.S. EPA, Montana DEQ, BSB Health Department, Montana Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Agency for Disease Registry, and Atlantic Richfield will be present to answer questions and respond to concerns raised. The meeting will be facilitated by Dr. Steve Ackerlund, a consultant to CTEC and selected by the Working Group to help ensure all points of view are respectfully heard.
We look forward to seeing you!
