Asbestos Management Plan
On October 30, 1987, the Federal Government enacted the Asbestos Hazard and Emergency Response Act for enforcement by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and designated agencies in the States. The law requires all elementary and secondary schools, both public and private, to conduct inspection to determine the location of asbestos containing materials and subsequently, to develop an management plan to ensure proper maintenance of these materials. The legislation requires that all parents and school staff be informed of the availability of the AHERA inspections and management plans.
In an ongoing effort with a team of Connecticut certified asbestos inspectors and management planners, the Greenwich Public Schools has conducted the required triennial inspections and submitted updated asbestos management plans to the CT State Department of Public Health As required, a copy of each schools' asbestos management plan is available for public inspection during regular school hours in the administrative office at each school. Please contact the District Facilities Office at 203-625-7450 to schedule an appointment.
