Public Notice: Asbestos Abatement October 2023

Public Notice: Asbestos Abatement October 2023
In order to install hardwood floors in the front gym and to replace floor tiles in Room 201, asbestos needs removed from the subfloors in both areas. 
A certified asbestos abatement company, Celtic Environmental, is under contract to perform the work. Here are some important points regarding the process:
  • These areas are closed and will remain closed until further notice.
  • We will follow all guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).
  • All asbestos removal will occur after school or during weekend hours when our school is empty or at minimal occupancy.  
  • Two layers of thick temporary barrier bubbles for the walls and ceilings will be installed to seal and isolate the work area from the nearby rooms and hallways, according to guidelines from the EPA and IDPH. 
  • Industrial strength HEPA air filters will replace all air inside the area every 15 minutes. 
  • There will be a separate environmental consultant on site to manage and take air quality sampling on a daily basis. This third party monitoring is a requirement of the EPA and IDPH.
The federal government requires asbestos abatement public notices prior to the beginning of the work which is scheduled to start October 19. Please click on the link below to review Fenton’s public notice:
