Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) :2016 NOTIFICATION
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that each year district workers and building occupants receive notification about asbestos activities such as response actions and inspections. The purpose of this correspondence is to meet those requirements and familiarize you with the asbestos related activities that have been conducted in Warren Consolidated Schools this past year.Management Plans
In 1988, Warren Consolidated Schools contracted with Asbestos Management Inc. to conduct inspections for asbestos containing material (AM) with all district owned buildings. This information was then compiled into Asbestos Management Plans. These Management Plans are kept in each building and are available for review. A copy of each building management plan is also located in the Educational Service Center.Surveillance Activities
The AHERA regulation requires surveillance of the condition of ACM every six months and re-inspections every three years. The next periodic surveillance will be conducted in September, 2014. Since the last re-inspection was done in 2013, the next Three Year Re-inspection will be conducted in 2016. Both of these surveillance activities will be included as part of the buildings’ Management Plans.Asbestos Abatement
It is anticipated that Warren Consolidated Schools will need to conduct only minor amounts of asbestos abatement within its facilities over the next year and will continue to maintain all ACM under the Operations & Maintenance Program.
Any removal projects will be performed by a Michigan Licensed Asbestos Abatement Contractor and managed by Nova Environmental, Inc., the District’s environmental consulting firm.
All asbestos documentation is available for your review in each building file and at the Educational Service Center.
