The next couple of weeks are going to be focused on asbestos abatement in the Parish Hall, mostly in the crawlspace beneath the first floor. The abatement contractor, Performance Abatement Services, assures us that their top concern is the safety of all parties, their workers and everyone who lives, works, or goes to school in the area.
There is signage up announcing the abatement work and identifying the work zone. The work zone is sealed off so that all of the material that is being abated is contained within it. Additionally, in accordance with regulations, the air both inside and outside the work zone are monitored continually. No special procedures are required of anyone except the PAS workers.
We expect that the abatement work will be completed, including inspection and the clearance to resume other work activities, around February 27.
