The EPA Cracks Down


From Wonder Makers Environmental

The EPA has begun enforcement of the new Renovation Repair and Painting (RRP) regulation. For a window replacement company in the Midwest, this new regulation came at a hefty cost. The company was fined $70,000 for failing to hand out Renovate Right brochures to its homeowner customers ($35,000 for non-compliance; $35,000 for willful violation).

Another window contractor in Michigan was cited with a $784,380 fine for failing to warn the tenants of 271 residential units of possible lead exposure during construction activities. Business owners are responsible for the requirements of all regulatory agencies that have rules concerning the work they do.
