Pumps shall be calibrated with an inline representative filter, before and after sample collection Air samples shall be analyzed in accordance with the OSHA Standard , by a competent trained person or laboratory. The results of samples shall be posted outside of the work enclosure as soon as they are made available from the analytical laboratory, but no more than 72 hours after the sample analysis has been received from the lab. Data should include Contractor required 8 hour TWA determinations with a description of work activities representing the collected sample, and results of work area Short Term Excursion Limit (STEL) environmental samples. Sample analysis reports shall show the duration of the collection as well as the flow rate of the sampling pump All costs associated with the Contractor s personal and environmental air monitoring shall be borne by the Contractor Ambient Environmental Air Monitoring The Owner has contracted the services of a Virginia Licensed Project Monitor to perform ambient environmental air sampling outside the work area; and final Clearance sampling for re-occupancy. The Project Monitor shall notify both the Contractor and the Owner immediately if any samples outside the work enclosure exceed 0.01 fibers/cc. Abatement activities shall cease until the situation is corrected. 14. Cleanup and Lockdown 14.1 All bags and equipment shall be removed from the work area via the decontamination unit.

9 14.2 Remove visible accumulations of asbestos material and debris. Wet wipe all surfaces within the work area All critical barriers, HEPA equipped ventilation units, air filtration, and the decontamination unit shall remain in place until final clearance is achieved The Project Monitor will perform a visual inspection of the work area to confirm that the area is free of visible asbestos debris Certification that the area is clean will be issued in writing by the Project Monitor. Once certification has been issued, the Contractor shall apply a fine mist of an approved encapsulation/lockdown agent to all surfaces within the work area. The encapsulation / lockdown agent shall not be allowed to puddle. Sufficient time shall be allowed for the encapsulant to dry prior to Final Clearance Sampling. 15. Final Clearance 15.1 Final air samples will be taken by the Project Monitor. After allowing the encapsulant to dry for at least 24 hours, the Project Monitor shall begin the final air clearance procedure. A Sufficient number of PCM cassettes will be loaded onto calibrated vacuum pumps, and operated for a period of 120 minutes. The cassettes will be collected and placed under Chain Of Custody, mounted for laboratory analysis, and then analyzed. If the final air samples do not meet clearance standards per the NIOSH 7400, PCM protocol (< 0.01 Fibers/ Cubic Centimeter), the Contractor will be responsible for all associated costs of re-cleaning the work area, as well as subsequent sampling and analysis. 16. Disposal 16.1 The storage / transport vehicle shall be lined with two (2) layers of 6 mil poly film. Proper asbestos signage and barrier tape shall demarcate the storage area while the container is onsite. During off hours the container shall be secured via a locking device Storage / Transport containers shall be maintained to allow for maximum storage capacity at the work site The Contractor shall comply with the 40 CFR 61 (Subpart B), the Virginia Department of Waste Management Regulations, local, and regional standards for the transport and disposal of all generated asbestos waste The waste manifest shall be authorized by the Owner or the Owners representative.
