Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response:

Dear Parents,
This letter is to inform you about the notification MACS received from the Department of Environmental Services regarding Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA).
We are required by law to annually notify you of our building’s status that no asbestos is present.
In 2017, MACS was inspected for asbestos during the second phase of our build out and the building was cleared of friable and non-friable materials.  Based on the finding of the inspection MACS is not required to have a management plan for controlling exposure.  It has come to our attention that we were required to annually notify you from 2018 forward of this status.  This note will serve as your annual reminder.
Regards,

Amy P. Bottomley
Director

Lead Water Testing Results:

On February 8, 2018, Governor Sununu signed Senate Bill 247 Prevention of Childhood Lead Poisoning. This law requires, among other actions, that all schools and licensed childcare facilities test lead in drinking water at all locations where water is available for consumption by children. The first round of testing is required to be completed by July 1, 2019, and every 5 years thereafter, until at least 3 rounds are below the standard.

Per DOE and The State of New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, Any location showing 15 ppb (0.015 mg/L) or higher must be remediated. Two of the water areas tested at MACS initially showed results above  the limit, however neither were drinking water areas.  We took action to remediate the problem; per Pennichuck Water’s recommendation, we replaced fixtures and re-tested.
