Asbestos Management Plan

Each year the Maryville City School system must tell students, parents, faculty, and staff about its asbestos management plan.  The Asbestos Hazards Emergency Response Act (AHERA) became law on October 22, 1986.  The act required that the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issue rules for asbestos management in all schools by October 17, 1987.  The EPA rules required that school systems develop an asbestos management plan and submit it to their state by May 1989.

The Maryville City School system has met all AHERA requirements.  The management plan is available for review at the office of Richard Harbison, 833 Lawrence Ave., Maryville.  It includes information about previous asbestos abatement projects, six months surveillance reports, the location and condition of remaining asbestos-containing materials, and the response action chosen for each.

Address any questions concerning asbestos in the Maryville City Schools to Scott Blevins at (865)982-7121.
