As of September 1, 2001, State law requires that anyone performing any demolition or renovation of a public or commercial building must perform an asbestos survey. The survey determines the presence of asbestos. The surveyor will alert the building owner about whether various asbestos laws apply to the property. The permit applicant must provide acceptable evidence of the survey to the municipality.
If you have any questions regarding asbestos or the asbestos survey, please call 800.572.5548 or 512.834.6610.
