REVISION TO RELEASE NO. 99-OPA064
EPA CITES 2 MICHIGAN PARTIES FOR ASBESTOS VIOLATIONS

In a release issued March 16, 1999, U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) Region 5 stated that Federal regulations on asbestos -- a
hazardous air pollutant -- had allegedly been violated during renovation of
the St. Lawrence School, 44633 Utica Rd., Utica, MI. 

At EPA's request, an inspector from the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality (MDEQ) on March 29 made a second inspection of
the St. Lawrence facilities and determined that, although the notice
provided to the State identified the church and school as being the
subject of the renovation, the boiler room where the alleged violations
took place is located in a building which only serves as the church and is
not part of the school.

The inspector reports that the church was the only building where the
boiler in question was used.  The school and the church are two
separate buildings, with separate utilities.
