Annual Notification of Asbestos Inspection (AHERA)

posted Sep 17, 2018, 5:10 AM by Paul Chasse   [ updated Sep 17, 2018, 5:13 AM ]

In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) in May 1989, we performed inspections of our school buildings for asbestos-containing building materials. The inspection findings and the required asbestos management plans are on file at the office of the Principal, at the Madawaska Middle/High School.

 The EPA requires all schools (K through 12) to perform re-inspections of the asbestos materials every three years. On August 7, 2018 a State Certified, licensed inspector performed these inspections. The results were reviewed by an accredited management planner and recommendations were made to continue to safely manage each asbestos material remaining in our buildings.

In accordance with AHERA regulations any remaining asbestos containing materials in the school buildings are checked on a six-month surveillance program. These materials remain in good condition and we will continue to manage them in place as recommended by the accredited management planner. 

The results of the inspection and removal work are on file in the management plan in the office of the Principal, 135 7th Avenue, Madawaska, ME. These documents are available for viewing during normal school hours (8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.). The Asbestos Program Manager, Paul Chasse, is available to answer any questions you may have about asbestos in our buildings at (207) 728-3371, ext. 2409 or via e-mail at pchasse@madawaskaschools.org

It's no secret that school budgets are tight, often leaving various programs underfunded. In an effort to devise a creative, low-pressure fund-raising opportunity, Ford launched the Drive 4 UR School test-drive program in 2007. Ford offers a $20 donation for each valid test-drive, up to $6,000 total*, which can be used for sports, booster clubs, music programs and the many other miscellaneous expenses associated with running a school.  
The MMHS athletic booster club will be holding a Ford Drive for your School event to raise money.  This will take place Saturday May 26th from 9:00-2:00 at the Madawaska Multi Purpose building.  Come try a brand new car to help cure your spring fever!!!  Anyone wishing to save themselves some time may download the PDF document below and fill it out in advance.
