The Silver Bow Creek/Butte Area site is a mining and processing area located 7 miles east of Anaconda in the Upper Clark Fork River Basin, Deer Lodge County, Montana. Site contamination is the result of over 100 years of mining and process operations in the area. Until the early 1970's, mining, milling, and smelting wastes were dumped directly into Silver Bow Creek and transported downstream. The ROD addresses an interim remedy for all media at OU12. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the soil, sediment, ground water, and surface water in the Inactive area are metals, including arsenic, chromium, and lead; and inorganics.
