26 LDEQ Web Sites for Asbestos and Lead-based Paint Asbestos: Hurricane Demolition: Lead-based Paint:

27 Recent Asbestos Updates No Action Assurance Letter for Katrina (3/31/ /30/2009) This means that residential structures that are environmentally unsound are treated the same as in danger of imminent collapse. Residential structures do not have to be inspected for asbestos. They can be demolished as RACM structures in lieu of conducting inspections.  LDEQ Protocol for Concrete Slab Recycling (Rev 4/28/09) The Department has developed and implemented a sampling and clearance protocol for concrete slab to ensure that the material that is crushed for recycling or reused is free of vinyl tile and mastic, whether it contains asbestos or not. 

28 LDEQ Protocol for Concrete Slab Recycling Required for ALL concrete slabs that will be REUSED or RECYCLED All suspect material and loose debris, including standing water, shall be removed from the slab; Required: Visual clearance by the owner or representative prior to requesting a clearance from DEQ; Owner representative shall notify LDEQ if the slab will be recycled by crushing or grinding; When complete, LDEQ will visually inspect each slab to determine if it is clean enough to be reused or recycled.

29 Slabs Recycled by CRUSHING or GRINDING LDEQ will determine if sampling is required & indicate sampling areas using a permanent felt tip marker; Sampling events shall be conducted using best work practices; Minimum number of samples taken: one for every 240 sq. ft. of slab demolished. Specific location of sample areas determined by LDEQ during the visual clearance; The sample depth shall not exceed one-sixteenth of an inch; Sampling: Manually scrape suspect material using an implement that will not contribute extraneous material to the sample. {eg. A brick scraper would contribute unrelated material, whereas a carbide blade would not}; Samples shall be taken from areas identified by LDEQ. Sampler shall increase the surface area if area identified is too small instead of going deeper. Lab results shall be sent electronically to the address of the appropriate LDEQ Regional Office.

30 Recent Updates LESHAP Guidance on Residential Demolitions (Issued 3/2/2009) LDEQ’s interpretation of the USEPA’s clarification notice in the Federal Register, Volume 60, No. 145, page 38725, dated Friday, July 28, 1995: Regulated Residential Structures:  An area (eg. city block) made up of multiple parcels of land owned/operated by various parties, the demo or reno of more than one small residential building under control of the same entity; (eg. individual buildings less than 330 feet apart are considered to be within an area equivalent to a city block);  An area owned and operated as a unitary area by a single owner/operator (eg. residences demolished to build a shopping mall, amusement park, community center, or right of way clearance for an interstate);

31 Recent Updates LESHAP Guidance on Residential Demolitions ( Issued 3/2/2009) Regulated Residential Structures:  A residential building demolished or renovated as part of a larger project that includes demo or reno of non- residential buildings;  Multiple buildings at a single site by the same owner or operator. (eg. The demo of 2 or more single dwelling residential buildings; or more than one 4-plex owned by one owner regardless of type of entity: commercial, municipal, or homeowner.

32 Recent Updates LESHAP Guidance on Residential Demolitions (Issued 3/2/2009) Residential Structures Not Regulated:  The owner of a home that renovates his house or demolishes it to construct another house;  The demo or reno of an isolated small residential building by any entity;  The demo of 2 individual residences separated by several city blocks should not be considered a demolition on a single site. *A single dwelling residential structure may contain a detached garage and still be considered a single dwelling residential structure

33 Recent Updates LESHAP Guidance on Residential Demolitions (Issued 3/2/2009)  Note: LDEQ submits this policy as a guide to NESHAP/LESHAP, however all reasonable precautions shall be taken to prevent particulate matter from becoming airborne for any demolition being conducted. In addition, this guide in no way prevents liability from any party performing demolition activities.  To ensure that the subject guidance is followed, the LDEQ recommends that Regional officials of LDEQ be contacted to make a determination on whether demolition of small residences structures is subject to NESHAP/LESHAP.

34 Recent Updates LESHAP Guidance on Residential Demolitions (Issued 3/2/2009) LESHAP and Solid Waste Disposal  LESHAP or not, the transportation and proper disposal of the waste from any activity is regulated under the Louisiana Solid Waste Regulations (LAC 33:VII);  RACM must be disposed in a Type 1 or 2 solid waste permitted landfill that also has recognition in accordance with the Louisiana Air Quality regulations, LAC 33:III.5151.N. (Category I and/or II ACM that becomes RACM during the demo process is subject to the same requirements);  Construction and Demolition (C&D) debris that is not RACM may be disposed in a Construction and Demolition debris landfill that has a plan approved by the Solid Waste Section of the LDEQ Waste Permits Division to accept such waste. *Even if not regulated, LDEQ encourages the intact removal of transite siding and asbestos shingles prior to demolition to reduce hazards and allow for disposal at C & D debris sites.
