Superfund Contacts

The Superfund process works best when the public communicates with agencies responsible for overseeing the technical and decision making process.

The following individuals work on the Butte-area Superfund sites. If you have a concern or comment, citizens should feel free to contact agency representatives. Letters, telephone calls, and emails are excellent ways to contact them, and CTEC encourages the public to be knowledgeable and active in stating concerns and comments.
