Wisconsin environmental officials are preparing to declare lead levels in the state's air are safe.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin environmental officials are preparing to declare lead levels in the state's air are safe.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency revised lead air standards last year. The state Department of Natural Resources believes lead levels statewide are within those standards.
The agency has drafted a document declaring the state has attained the EPA's standards. The DNR plans to hold a public hearing on Sept. 28 at its Madison headquarters to take comments on it.
The final document goes to Gov. Jim Doyle. He must make attainment recommendations to the EPA by Oct. 15.
