Asbestos News

Asbestos removal set to begin at Ohio elementary school
The Fremont, Ohio school district recently awarded an asbestos abatement contract to Total Environment in advance of the demolition of Fremont Middle School, the News-Messenger reports.

According to the news source, Total Environment bid $108,665 for the project, which was the second-lowest. Chris Moore of Touchstone CPM, which has been contracted for the demolition work on the middle school, told the news source the asbestos removal is scheduled to begin in March and be completed by May.

During a board meeting last October, Moore noted that a survey indicated a plaster area in the auditorium ceiling needed to be removed for approximately $100,000. However, he added that other plaster located in the middle school had tested negative for asbestos.

Ensuring that asbestos is completely removed from buildings set to be demolished is critical, as the dangerous mineral fibers can become airborne if loosened during such work. The inhalation of these fibers has been proven to cause lung cancer, asbestosis and malignant mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer.

The district has scheduled a farewell open house for the middle school on February 5, according to the news source.
