Department Update

All projects that could potentially generate dust, regardless of the presence or absence of asbestos, must file a MassDEP permit AQ-06 at least 10 days prior to the start of disturbance. If the project needs an emergency waiver for unexpected asbestos, MassDEP will ask for the AQ-06 permit number.

Did You Know?

Modern building materials may contain asbestos. A hazardous building materials survey should be done in the area of renovation, regardless of the age of the building, to verify the presence or absence of asbestos containing material.
