The EPA says Prudent Technologies of Kansas City, Mo., violated several rules for dealing with lead paint at two properties in Omaha.
For instance, the agency says Prudent failed to cover the ground with plastic sheeting and post signs warning about lead paint around the job site.
Most of eastern Omaha has been considered a super-fund site by the EPA because of the extent of lead contamination, which can endanger children’s health, causing decreased intelligence, slow growth and behavior problems.
