Lowe's settles EPA allegations on lead paint
from Los Angeles Times
Lowe's Cos., the home-improvement retail giant, has agreed to pay a $500,000 civil penalty and roll out a new record-keeping policy for contractors that could encounter lead paint. The settlement, announced in April, ended a federal investigation into allegations that Lowe's had violated safe practices to prevent lead pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency alleged that Lowe's failed to show in its records that its independent contractors on renovation projects were certified by the EPA, received the required training and followed lead-safe practices.
