In compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), Westgate Community School is required annually to inform all parents, teachers and staff as to the availability of our asbestos management plan as well as any activities which have taken place in the previous year.
A periodic surveillance of asbestos containing building materials (ACBM) is performed at Westgate every six months. A complete re-inspection of Westgate is completed every three years and was last completed in August 2015. No asbestos containing materials have been disturbed or removed in the last year.
Information about these inspections is included in the AHERA Asbestos Management Plan which can be found in Westgate’s Business Office.
