At Iowa Lakes, several measures have been established to deal with asbestos containing materials. The college's fundamental policy is to manage asbestos in place and this method is currently encouraged by the EPA. This process involves locating and assessing the condition of all asbestos containing material. Decisions on maintenance, repair, or removal of the material are made based on this assessment, change in occupancy, or construction requirements. The complete plan is available upon request in the facilities management office or the S:\19--Physical Plant\Safety Haz Mat\Iowa Lakes Asbestos Plan.
