Woburn firm failed to warn about lead paint, EPA alleges

The Environmental Protection Agency has reached a settlement with a national painting company whose Woburn office allegedly violated federal regulations by not properly informing New England customers about the dangers of renovating houses that could contain lead paint.

College Pro Painters did not give the required informational pamphlets to at least 41 homeowners or tenants in four states — Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Maine — warning that work their employees or contractors were performing in 2008 and 2009 could create lead paint hazards, the EPA alleges.
