State Rep. John Boccieri (D-Poland) and Sen. Joe Schiavoni (D-Boardman) sent a letter today to Ohio EPA Director Craig Butler raising concerns about the EPA’s delayed response to multiple tests revealing lead contamination in Sebring and Beloit’s drinking water. The letter is a follow-up to a conference call that took place last night between all parties in which Director Butler and EPA Liaison Danielle Giannantonio first briefed state legislators on the issue.
