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 Chippewa Valley Schools during the past year.
Chippewa Valley Schools has contracted with an environmental consulting firm to conduct inspections and develop asbestos Management Plans for asbestos containing material (ACM) within all district owned buildings. These Management Plans are located in the administrative office of each building and are available to the public for review. A copy of each building management plan is also located at the Maintenance Building.
The AHERA regulation requires periodic surveillance of the condition of ACM every six months. The regulation also requires Re-inspections conducted every three years by Michigan Accredited Inspectors. Chippewa Valley Schools has contracted with an independent consulting firm, to conduct the Re-inspections. The next Re-inspection is scheduled for August 2019. Previous Re-inspections and six month periodic inspections can be located in the building’s Management Plans.
Chippewa Valley Schools has performed no asbestos abatement projects within the past year. Questions regarding asbestos removal projects or any asbestos-related issues can be addressed by Mr. Ken Hauer, Maintenance/Grounds Supervisor, at (586) 723-2252.
