    2019-2020 Annual Notification to Parents/Teachers/Staff of Availability of Asbestos Management Plans

     

     

    This notice is to inform all parents, faculty and staff of the availability of the asbestos management plan for each building under the jurisdiction of the Council Rock School District (CRSD), as required by law. In accordance with the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), 40 CRF Part 763.93, CRSD conducted initial inspections of all the School District buildings for the presence of Asbestos Containing Building Materials (ACBM) in 1988. An asbestos management plan for each building was developed at that time, detailing the location and condition of all ACBM along with the short-term actions to be taken to protect building occupants, and documentation of response actions. These management plans are available for review by any interested person at either the Council Rock Maintenance Facility located at 301 Twining Ford Road, Richboro; or at the individual School during normal working hours. AHERA regulations require re-inspections of all ACBM every three years by an accredited building inspector, and this includes an update of the Management Plan. The latest 3-year re-inspection and management plan update was provided by Element Environmental Solutions, Inc. in August of 2017, and the next 3-year update is scheduled for August of 2020. .

     

    The AHERA regulations also require surveillance inspections of all ACBM every six months, by an individual with training and knowledge of ACM. The latest 6-month surveillance inspection and report was provided by Element Environmental Solutions, Inc. (E2S) in August of 2019. These reports and management plan updates are also available for review by any interested person at either the Council Rock Maintenance Facility located at 301 Twining Ford Road, Richboro; or at the individual School during normal working hours. Element Environmental Solutions, Inc. (E2S) has been contracted by CRSD as the District’s Environmental Consultant, to provide the required re-inspections, and assist CRSD in compliance with all other requirements of AHERA, through the 2019-2020 school year.
