More steps taken to stop mold
October 29, 2002

With the results of mold testing at Lincoln County High School still not in, officials have already taken additional steps to stop the infestation.


A mechanical engineer has inspected the site and recommended that germicidal lights - ultra violet air purification devices - be installed in the school's heating and air conditioning ductwork. The lights would kill the mold as well as bacteria, germs, fungus and the like.

"We have ordered these UV units and will begin the installation upon arrival," said Bobby Alder, facilities supervisor for the county schools system, during a work session of the Lincoln County Board of Education earlier this month. "The engineer will also review the mechanical drawings to make sure that the HVAC systems are adequate for our building."

Testing for microbial contamination was conducted on Oct. 11 by a certified industrial hygienist, with air samples and samples from visible areas as well as from ductwork taken.

The testing is expected to identify the mold species, and the hygienist is also expected to offer recommendations for remediation.
Concerns relating to the mold were first discussed by the board a few weeks ago. According to discussion then, evidence of the mold is prevalent in several classrooms mainly in the northern section of the school and in its library.

Several measures were taken by the system's maintenance staff in an attempt to combat the ongoing problem.
