With the finding of PCBs at Osborn Hill School, Fairfield Public Schools and the Town of Fairfield will initiate a comprehensive review of the potential for PCBs in all of Fairfield school buildings.
The school district has retained Woodard & Curran to develop short-term and long-term management programs for the potential existence of PCBs in all of its schools.
The firm will survey the district’s school buildings and present a probability finding as it relates to the potential presence of PCBs in building materials and the potential risk to students and staff in the buildings. The building survey will be conducted in November and December, and findings will be presented in January, 2013.
Woodard & Curran is a 650-person, integrated engineering, science and operations company that has served public and private clients locally and nationally. It has worked on more than 150 buildings in New England, primarily focused on school settings, colleges and universities, including Yale and Harvard.
Woodard & Curran will discuss the project at public meetings in November and December, with a schedule to be announced.
