Schools and Asbestos Management Plans

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division is the Governor's designee for the receipt of asbestos management plans for all public and private, non-profit schools in the State of Colorado. In 1995, the State of Colorado was granted a waiver by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to completely administer and enforce the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) regulations in the State. The Air Pollution Control Division is responsible for maintaining the management plan files and inspecting schools to ensure that they are in compliance with the regulations.
