EPA Rule opt-out clause, Expiration Date?
I have a project here in Tennesse where the new EPA lead provision is very much going to be on the table (pre ’78 structure). I and my company are EPA certified, but the client is interested in the opt-out provision.
I have been told that the opt-out provision is expiring, and you can read about said expiration on the EPA site now. No one in my area, including my HBA chapter, can give me a straight answer on this–when or how the expiration of the opt-out clause will take effect. My understanding is that if the opt-out provision is still in-effect when I have the homeowners sign it– Before the supposed July 1 deadline of its expiration (the best target date I have heard)–then the opt-out will stand.
I want to be sure about the nuances of this for the project ahead of me, so any insight anyone can share is much obliged.
Peace and Hammers,
