Your health. Our focus.
The Institutional Controls Program (ICP) is a locally enforced set of rules and regulations designed to ensure the integrity of clean soil and other protective barriers placed over contaminants left throughout the Bunker Hill Superfund site. To find out if a property has been remediated, contact Panhandle Health District at 208-783-0707.
The ICP offers several services to help residents of the Bunker Hill Superfund Site maintain their barriers and protect their health. All residents are eligible to receive one (1) cubic yard of gravel or topsoil annually to maintain their barrier. The ICP also provides containers and pick-up services for contaminated soil disposal when a homeowner is undertaking a small excavation project. High efficiency HEPA vacuums are loaned out for the cleaning of residences free of charge.
Home renovation can be a source of lead exposure, especially in homes built before 1978. Homeowners involved in interior construction projects need to protect their health by controlling dust. The ICP offers plastic to segregate construction areas, lead certified respirators, and Tyvek suits free of charge. For more information call (208) 783-0707 or visit our Kellogg office at 35 Wildcat Way.
The ICP also provides education, sampling assistance, clean soils for small projects that need less than one cubic yard of material, pick-up of soil removed from small projects and a permanent disposal site for contaminated soils generated site-wide.
The ICP regulates and provides assistance with construction and renovation projects on building interiors that involve ceiling and attic work, insulation removal, and work in dirt basements and crawl spaces.
The fundamental purpose of the ICP is to protect the public health and assist local land transactions within the Superfund site.
