Several members of the Butte Superfund community expressed their dismay to Environmental Protection Agency officials at a community meeting Wednesday about wide-ranging issues — including perceived unaddressed health problems and the removal of the Parrot tailings, a controversial deposit of mine waste behind the Civic Center.

Among officials who visited Butte were the EPA's second in command, Albert “Kel” Kelly, and Region 8 Administrator Doug Benevento.

A crowd of about 100 people turned out at the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives for the morning meeting.
