BOSTON (Legal Newsline) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that three N.H. companies face penalties after allegations of failing to follow federal lead paint regulations at a commercial and residential property in Manchester.

In one administrative complaint, the EPA seeks a penalty of $139,171 from Brady Sullivan Millworks II LLC and Brady Sullivan Millworks IV LLC (Brady Sullivan) of Manchester, New Hampshire, for alleged violations of the Real Estate Notification and Disclosure rule and the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule. 

In a second administrative complaint, the EPA seeks a $152,848 penalty from Environmental Compliance Specialists Inc. (ECSI) of Kingston, New Hampshire, for allegations of violating the RRP Rule.

"EPA always works to ensure that building owners, property managers and construction contractors understand and comply with federal lead-paint disclosure and lead-safe work practice requirements to protect people from exposure to lead," said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA's New England office. “This is especially important when children are involved since exposure to lead can have serious developmental impacts on kids' growing bodies and minds.” 

The RRP Rule exists to prevent children’s exposure to lead-based paint. Many residences, schools and other buildings used lead paint in their construction before 1978.
