Asbestos Removal Closed Classroom At Binghamton School

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A classroom at another Binghamton City School District elementary building was closed after a small amount of asbestos was detected in a ventilator unit.

Karry Mullins, the district’s assistant superintendent for administration, says a pre-K classroom at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School, was closed after two samples revealed “small amounts” of asbestos fibers inside a univent.

Mullins says 16 samples were taken from different parts of the Ogden Street school September 26. She says the pre-K room was sealed after results were received late Tuesday.

Mullins says the affected area was small, a containment was built around the univent and cleaning was completed in accordance with state and federal regulations.

Air samples then were taken to confirm the asbestos fibers were removed.

Mullins says results from clearance samples indicate cleanup work was completed so the classroom will be back in use on Friday. She says the asbestos removal was done by Sunstream Corporation of Binghamton.

A major asbestos removal project is continuing at Calvin Coolidge Elementary School on Robinson Street. Mullins says that work is going as planned.
