In compliance with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), inspections were performed at each of our buildings for asbestos containing building materials. The initial findings and management plans have been in place since the required date of July 9, 1989.

The EPA requires us to renew our asbestos management plan every three years, and inspect asbestos containing materials every six months. Six month inspections are typically completed in April and October of each year. Copies of the management plan and inspections are kept on file in each building office and in the Buildings & Grounds office and may be viewed during normal school hours.

Brian E. Hartman, Asbestos Program Manager, is available to answer questions regarding asbestos in our buildings by calling, (717) 273-9391 and asking for Buildings and Grounds.
