Workers cleanup lead from residential yard in Omaha.
In 1998, the Omaha City Council requested assistance from EPA to address the high frequency of children found with elevated blood lead levels in eastern Omaha by the Douglas County Health Department. At the time, EPA began investigating the lead contamination in the Omaha areas under the authority of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), also known as the Superfund law. To date, EPA has collected soil samples from more than 38,500 properties and cleaned up more than 12,500 residential yards. EPA completed the EPA-lead remedial action on December 31, 2015. Beyond that date, EPA has a cooperative agreement with the City of Omaha to collect soil from additional properties that have not been sampled, and clean up any additional properties whose owners grant access for remediation.
