Doe Run agrees to spend $65 million to correct environmental violations in Missouri

Doe Run has settled with the EPA for violating a series of environmental laws regarding their various plants and mines throughout Missouri. Doe Run will also be closing their Herculaneum facility, rather than install improvements to put them in compliance with the Clean Air Act. The EPA is also issuing for public comment a new administrative order that would require Doe Run to sample residential properties within 1.5 miles of the Herculaneum smelter and to clean up all residential properties with lead soil concentrations of 400 parts per million or higher within that zone.

There is no known safe level of lead in the body. Even at small doses, lead can cause developmental delays, loss of IQ points and other problems in children. The loss of IQ points due to lead exposure is permanent even after the lead is excreted from the body.

I have handled hundreds of cases on behalf of lead-poisoned children in the City of St. Louis and I have the largest verdict in Missouri on behalf of a lead poisoned child.

While I do not currently represent anyone affected by the Doe Run facilities, I do represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in various environmental litigation. To find out if The Simon Law Firm can help with your landfill case, contact environmental lawyer Todd Hageman.
