In the Lewiston-Porter School District in New York, several schools have uncovered asbestos during renovations. The asbestos was not expected and has significantly slowed the $28 million renovation project. However, the district still expects to finish the majority of the project by the end of the month.
The asbestos abatement took precedence in the project because it can pose a large health risk. All demolition or renovation projects involving asbestos must focus on abatement before any other action can be taken so that the workers and general public are not exposed to dangerous asbestos fibers.
