LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Environmental Protection Agency says it’s settled a civil enforcement action against a Lincoln landlord for what the agency says was a violation of rules regarding lead paint.

The agency said Monday that LHP will pay a nearly $8,900 civil penalty over renovation work done at one of its rental houses in Lincoln. An LHP representative didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.

The EPA says it found in November 2012 that the company failed to post warning signs, didn’t close all doors and windows within 20 feet of the renovation and didn’t follow other rules covering safety for lead paint. Lead exposure can cause a variety of health problems, especially in children. The EPA also says it cited LHP for violations in 2008 and 2009.
