AHERA annual notification 2020

AHERA annual notification

The United States Environmental Protection Agency requires that each year, Sidney Central School District workers and building occupants receive notification of asbestos removal or abatement activities such as a response action or inspection (EPA 40 CFR § 763 Subpart E).

This communication serves to inform all parents, legal guardians, teachers, administrators and all other employees that the six-month periodic surveillance of asbestos at all buildings as required by AHERA was performed in the previous January 1, 2020 and June 30, 2020. The three-year re-inspection, also required by law, was performed in July of 2019 by a fully accredited Asbestos Inspector from the DCMO BOCES Health and Safety. All asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) that remain are in good condition and are located in primarily in inaccessible areas. The next three-year re-inspection will be due July 2022. Updated asbestos management plans for each school building are available for review in the District Office and through the main office of each building.

Each building will continue to have a six-month periodic surveillance and a three-year re-inspection as required by AHERA. All abatement projects have been and will continue to be performed by New York State and EPA approved asbestos abatement contractors. 

Any questions regarding asbestos removal projects or any asbestos related issues should be addressed to Mr. Chris Stillman, LEA Designated Person, at (607) 561-7715 or via email at [email protected].
