FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


(Lenexa, Kan., June 11, 2015) - EPA Region 7 conducted a random recordkeeping inspection at Damage Control & Restoration, Inc., in Kansas City, Kan., which revealed violations of the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule. As part of a settlement with EPA filed recently in Lenexa, Kan., the company has agreed to pay a $12,194 penalty to the United States.

The Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule seeks to reduce lead exposure from toxic lead dust that can be disturbed during renovations and repairs. The rule regulates lead-based paint activities, including renovation of residences built prior to 1978, and the certification of individuals and firms who are involved in these activities.

The recordkeeping inspection at Damage Control & Restoration, a home renovation company that specializes in fire and water restoration, revealed that the company failed to distribute required pamphlets, and retain records documenting lead-safe work practices.  Read Source Document
