RE: Creosote Ban?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Message
The last thing  I knew, and that was while I was working on my BS (circa 1996-97) creosote was a big-time no no per the EPA.  I would start by checking with some treated pole manufacturers (i.e. telephone poles, etc.) and/or rail tie manufacturers, one of them should know the actual EPA reg verbiage.

Subject: Creosote Ban?

Does anyone know if the EPA has banned the use of creosote treated timber for marine applications?  I know it can't be used in residential applications, but I want to use if for a bridge repair project I'm working on.
