Hazardous Materials, Lead-Based Paint, and Asbestos Survey – HNLC Port Authority – Newark, Ohio

STONE was retained by the Heath-Newark-Licking County (HNLC) Port Authority to complete an asbestos-containing materials (ACM) and hazardous materials (Hazmat) assessment for a building located at the Heath, Newark, Licking County Port Authority facility. The building was planned for demolition. The ACM survey was conducted in general accordance with Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) and National Emissions Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) protocols. A lead-based paint (LBP) assessment of painted surfaces was performed during the site visit using a handheld X-ray fluorescent (XRF) analyzer. Hazardous materials including regulated and universal wastes were observed throughout the building and included household size containers of paints, adhesives, cleaning chemicals, coatings and acetone, as well as fluorescent bulbs, light ballasts that may be Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB)-containing, mercury thermostats, air conditioning units and drinking water fountains that may contain Freon. STONE provided field sampling results within five days of receipt of laboratory results.

I am writing to thank you (Hank) and STONE for the services you performed for the site civil design (CC-plans and Site Compliance Plan), preparation of construction documents and specifications, and obtaining approvals through the City of Columbus for our new V&S Columbus Galvanizing LLC facility. Your ability to meet our tight schedule, stay within engineering construction budgets, and provide a quality end product was critical to the completion of the site work for this project.
