Frequently Asked Questions - Environmental Programs

  • I'm doing a renovation/demolition project. Do I have to do a lead survey or lead abatement?

    Most likely not. We do not do lead abatement projects very often, because we currently have very few spaces that are considered to be "child-occupied facilities" that are in danger of having lead paint.

    We do require that contractors use lead-safe best work practices for every renovation or demolition project.

  • I'm doing a renovation/demolition project. Do I have to do an asbestos survey? What if the building is less than 10 years old?

    Yes, unless we have survey data of the space already. Usually we can figure out if a survey is needed with a quick site visit and check of our records.
