A study was conducted to evaluate the implementation of O&M program at ten sites representing eight New Jersey schools. The evaluation included aspects required by AHERA as well as those recommended in EPA guidance. Each school's O&M program and compliance with their program during past O&M activities were documented. In addition, ten ongoing O&M activities were documented to determine the impact of the activities on airborne asbestos levels and to determine compliance with the O&M program during these activities. Overall, schools were not implementing all the elements of the O&M program. Schools performed more O&M program elements required by AHERA than those recommended in EPA guidance. Increases in area asbestos levels (by TEM) were observed during five of the ten O&M activities evaluated, however, none of the total fiber levels (by PCM) exceeded the OSHA PEL.
