Lead Paint Notification

Residents of Northwest and Washington Court Apartments:

There is a legal mandate based on an EPA law passed in April 2010, that testing for lead paint occur in apartment housing built before 1978.  The rationale is that paint produced and applied after 1978 was non-lead based paint, because lead based paint was banned at that time.  The Nova Environmental inspection team was hired this summer to test painted surfaces applied before 1978 in the university apartments. The tool they used to determine the presence of lead can analyze almost ten layers of paint. 

Northwest Apartments had two components that were considered positive for lead:  the metal window panels in each apartment and the concrete ceiling on the first floor of the each unit. There were not any components that contained lead based paint in Kewadin Village.  In Washington Court the metal window panels in every unit and common area/stairwell were positive for lead based paint.  

It is our legal obligation to notify the residents/potential residents that there is lead based paint present.  The EPA has a pamphlet that will satisfy this requirement, which can be accessed below.
