Annual Notification of the Asbestos Management Plan
In accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1987 (40 CFR Part 763), the Galway CSD is required to give annual notification stating that the Asbestos Management Plan for each building is available for review during normal business hours in the LEA Asbestos Designee’s office.

Six-month periodic asbestos surveillances as well as a triennial inspection are required in pursuant of AHERA. The triennial inspection will be completed by July 2024, and a six-month surveillance is conducted every June and December. The recently approved Capital Improvement Project will entail some asbestos abatement. This process will be conducted over the next few years. Whenever asbestos abatement is performed, all work is conducted according to all applicable local, state and federal regulations.

For more information, please contact the LEA Asbestos Designee Jonathan Taggart at 518-882-1033 ext. 3234.

Fire Inspection Completed 
The annual fire inspection was conducted in January 2023, and the required reports were submitted to the New York State Education Department. For questions please contact 518-882-1033 ext. 3234.

Pesticide Notification 
The Galway CSD may use pesticide products periodically throughout the year. 
The Pesticide Neighbor Notification Law requires school districts to maintain a list of staff and persons in a parental relation who wish to receive 48-hour written notice prior to the application of pesticides. Written notifications will include the date, locations and product used for each application.

For further information or to be placed on the school specific 48-hour notification list, please contact Christopher Cook, Director of Facilities, at 518-882-1033 ext. 3234.

Water Testing Results
In accordance with the law, the district will conduct water testing at all buildings with the assistance of a state-approved laboratory. In accordance with the law, if the lead level from a water outlet exceeds the state’s action level of 15 parts per billion, the district will take immediate action. The state’s regulations require that all such outlets be taken offline, or otherwise restricted until a remediation plan is implemented, and further testing indicates that lead levels are below the action level.
