Re: Informing the locations and availability of the asbestos management
On October 22, 1986, President Reagan signed into
law the Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA). It required the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) to issue regulations requiring all private
and public elementary and secondary schools to be inspected for
asbestos. To take action in the event that any asbestos containing
material was determined to be a possible health hazard and to develop
a management plan for each school, which would be publicly available
and which would contain detailed results of the inspection and records
of any actions taken by the school with respect to asbestos.
On October 30, 1987, the EPA issued final regulations
as required by law. These rules are widely known as the 1987 Asbestos
In-Schools Rule, or the AHERA regulations.
This notice is to inform you that in compliance with
Regulation 40 CFR Part 763.84 (c), a copy of the Asbestos Management
Plan for the above named schools and organizations are available
for inspection. To inspect this document you should contact the
principal or myself. Copies will be available at the school, administrative
office or my office.
Also, regular six month periodic surveillances
of asbestos containing materials will be conducted during the months
of July and December. Further, if any asbestos response actions (e.g.
removal, repair, enclosure, encapsulation, or operations and maintenance)
take place in any of our schools, notices will be posted.
If you have any questions regarding this notice, please feel free
to contact my office.
