In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), we are required annually to inform all parents, teachers and staff as to the availability of our asbestos management plan as well as any activities which have taken place in the previous year.
We have recently completed the required 3-year asbestos reinspection of our facilities as well as several removal projects as part of our building projects. All asbestos removal was conducted by highly qualified and State licensed asbestos contractor in accordance with current regulations issued by the EPA, ODH, and OSHA. To alleviate any fears concerning potential asbestos exposure, we retained the services of a licensed air-monitoring firm to be on-site for the duration of the asbestos removal projects. Air monitoring was conducted inside and outside the asbestos removal areas to ensure that air levels are in compliance with EPA regulations. In addition, air samples were taken following completion of the removal to ensure that air levels are below the regulatory clearance level.
Our asbestos management plan is on file in the Maintenance Office and in the office of each school building. All interested partied are welcome to view the management plan during normal school hours.
