This site will take you to the new proposed plan. Scroll down to the link to the revised proposed plan. It takes awhile for the PDF file to load (up to 5 minutes!)

EPA and DEQ have signed the ROD calling for removal of the Milltown Dam and approximately 2.6 million cubic yards of contaminated sediments in the Milltown Reservoir. The cleanup is expected to take 6-7 years and cost (by EPA estimates) $106 million. The cleanup will be integrated with the State of Montana's Natural Resource Damages Program. The Milltown Reservoir Record of Decision is available on EPA’s web page:
