General Qualification

Soil Remediation: The EPA established guideline for soil replacement (remediation) for residential properties having a lead concentration of 400 parts per million (ppm) in the soil. Properties whose soil tested at or above 400 PPM were eligible for soil replacement (remediation) work, which was done by the EPA and/or the City of Omaha (or their contractors). Only those properties whose soil was replaced (remediated) are eligible for this program.

Four special lead dust “wipes” will be used to collect samples in the interior of the home:

  • Three from the floors: Main Entry Way, Living Room, and another room*.
  • One from a window sill*: This will be from a window that is regularly opened.

*Note: If children under the age of seven reside at the residence, one of the floor samples and the window sill sample will be taken from a child’s bedroom. This is usually the room of the youngest child that can easily reach the window sill, and no damage to the property will occur.
