FAIRFIELD, Conn. — PCB-containing paint has been discovered at Fairfield Ludlowe High School and the town plans a forum on the topic for July 11.
Those working on the window replacement project of the school’s Building Committee discovered the paint, which has been encapsulated by years of repainting in the school’s interior.
Environmental testing showed there are no air quality issues or health risks posed by the paint.
The Fairfield Ludlowe High School Building Committee, Fairfield Health Department, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the Environmental Protection Agency are working closely with the town and its environmental consultants to determine details of the abatement plan for these areas as part of the building committee’s work.
Work on the window replacement project is not affected by the encapsulated paint.
School and town officials know the community will have questions about the issue, so a forum will be held at 7 p.m., July 11, at the Board of Education board room, 501 Kings Highway East. Experts from the town Health Department and the project’s environmental consulting firm will be on hand to offer details and answer questions.
