In 1988, a study was conducted to document Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act final clearance concentrations of asbestos at these 17 schools. The findings of the study prompted a followup study in 1990 to determine the airborne asbestos concentrations 2 years after the abatement efforts in these schools. Another followup study was conducted in May 1991 to determine the airborne asbestos concentrations in these 17 schools during actual occupied conditions. Results showed elevated levels of airborne asbestos at seven of the schools. Reentrainment of residual asbestos-containing debris from the 1988 abatement or operations and maintenance activities may have contributed to the elevated airborne asbestos concentrations measured during the May 1991 study.
