Renovations Update: The Lead Paint is Leaving!

The interior demolition of Kirklea is complete.

Twenty percent of the exterior lead paint has been removed. Lead abatement is designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards. Abatement involves specialized techniques not seen with other paints in regular use today. The EPA requires individuals and firms who perform abatement projects in pre-1978 facilities to be specially certified and follow specific removal practices.
