Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA)


In accordance with federal legislation, Pullman School District has complied with Environmental Protection Agency regulations concerning asbestos-containing materials and completed AHERA inspections and management plans for all buildings.

The inspection uncovered some nonfriable and friable asbestos-containing building materials (ACBM) in school district buildings. Friable ACBMs have been encapsulated, encased or otherwise protected in accordance with federal (AHERA) and state WISHA laws. Nonfriable ACBMs are regulated in accordance with all federal and state laws.

Copies of the AHERA inspection report and management plan for school district buildings are available for public review at the maintenance and operations building during regular business hours.

Any questions regarding asbestos-containing materials in our schools should be directed to facilities supervisor John Naranjo at 509-334-5586,; or the executive director of operations Joe Thornton, Pullman School District's designated AHERA representative, at 509-332-3581,
