Asbestos Informational Update

From Head of School, Dr. Alex Curtis

In the 2019-20 academic year there will be two, sixth-month re-inspections of buildings on campus that have, or are presumed to have, asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM).

These re-inspections will be conducted in accordance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), and the State of Connecticut regulations, which require a re-inspection of ACBM every six months.

The full Asbestos Management Plan, including an inventory of asbestos-containing materials at Choate Rosemary Hall, is available for your inspection at the Facilities Services Office. In addition, copies are available upon request for a fee. Steven Cahoon, Manager of Energy Management Systems is the AHERA-Designated Persons responsible for directing the program. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Facilities Services at (203) 697-2231.
