1.0       Introduction

As authorized by Mr. James Shepherd, AIA, of Beyer Blinder Belle, Froehling & Robertson, Inc.
(F&R) personnel performed a limited hazardous materials survey at the National Park Service
Thomas Farm House located in Frederick, MD, on December 15, 2008, January 5, 2009, and
February 15, 2009. The survey was limited to the Thomas Farm-Main House and did not include
Lead-Based Paint testing. F&R was furnished with a previous limited asbestos testing and lead-in-
dust screening survey conducted by Boggs Environmental Consultants, Inc. (BEC) of Frederick,
Maryland.

The Thomas Farm House is a two-story building with an attached two car garage, a side sun
porch, a rear lower and upper porch, and a small cellar. The house was constructed of brick over
wood frame with a combination of asphalt and slate roofing materials. The house was originally
built during the late 18th Century to early 19th Century with additions and renovations in the 20th
Century and the total area of the building is approximately 4,000 square feet. The house is
currently vacant/ inhabitable and is undergoing exterior lead-based paint abatement. The
proposed project includes the renovation and restoration of the main house, including upgrading of
all mechanical systems.

The scope of the hazardous materials survey for these buildings consisted of the following items
only:
       Survey for asbestos-containing materials (ACM’s).
       Inventorying of PCB-containing light ballasts, mercury-containing components.
       Visual observations for mold and animal excrement.

2.0       Asbestos-Containing Material (ACM)

2.1       Methodology

For this project, a non-invasive visual survey and sampling for suspect asbestos containing
materials were conducted at the above referenced site.

All samples were collected by Virginia licensed Asbestos Inspectors and submitted to
Environmental Hazard Services, LLC’ NVLAP Accredited and Virginia licensed Asbestos
Laboratory, located in Richmond, Virginia. A total of one hundred and one (101) samples were
analyzed using Polarized Light Microscopy (PLM) following EPA Method 600/R-93/116.

2.3     Conclusions and Recommendations

2.3.1   Asbestos-Containing Materials

2.3.1 (a) Friable Asbestos-Containing Materials

Asbestos (55% chrysotile) was detected in the samples collected of the Thermal System Insulation
(TSI) located underneath the floors in Room 102, 101, and 100 as identified in the Limited
Asbestos Testing & Lead-In-Dust Screening Report dated September 4, 2008 by Boggs
Environmental Consultants, Inc. (BEC). Mr. Alvin Hatcher collected all samples on August 18 and
21, 2008. This material is classified as a Regulated Asbestos-Containing Material (RACM) and is
in poor condition at the time of F&R’s survey. All similar Thermal System Insulation (various
diameters) located throughout the building should be assumed to contain asbestos.

Asbestos was detected in one of the soil samples collected underneath the floor of Room 104 as
identified in the Limited Asbestos Testing & Lead-In-Dust Screening Report dated September 4,
2008 by Boggs Environmental Consultants, Inc. (BEC). Mr. Alvin Hatcher collected all samples on
August 18 and 21, 2008. Asbestos was detected in one of the soil samples collected by F&R in
the basement (underneath Room 101/101A). This area has at least 4” of gravel on top of the bare
soil. Based on our observations, it would appear that contamination of the soil, if present, is in the
soil underneath where the original pipes had run. In general most of these areas are now covered
by gravel although bare soil was not covered with the gravel approximately 6” from the perimeter
wall. All bare soil along the perimeter wall of the basement (underneath Room 101/101A) should
be assumed to be contaminated. F&R recommends that the bare soil be completely covered with
the already established gravel.

Asbestos (15% chrysotile) was detected in a sample collected of the Inside of the Furnace located
in the Basement. This material is classified as Regulated Asbestos Containing Materials (RACM)
and is in good to fair condition in the areas observed at the time of survey. All Inside of Furnace
should be assumed to contain asbestos.

2.3.1 (b) Non-friable Asbestos-Containing Materials

Asbestos (4% chrysotile) was detected in a sample collected of the 12” x 12” White Floor Tiles
located in Room 207. This material is classified as Non-friable Category I and was in good to fair
condition in the areas observed at the time of survey. This material may be under carpet, cabinets,

fixtures, etc. All 12” X 12” White Floor Tiles located throughout the building should be assumed to
contain asbestos.

2.3.1 (c) Presumed Asbestos-Containing Materials

In general, all non-fiberglass insulation (thermal systems insulation, mudded elbows, fittings,
exhaust flue, etc.) in the building should be assumed to contain asbestos. F&R notes that it is likely
that this material may be found above solid ceiling, behind walls, and inside solid floors.

F&R recommends that an Operation and Maintenance (O&M) plan be developed and implemented
to manage all known and suspect ACMs in the building in accordance with 29 CFR 1926.1101 until
the building is demolished.

2.3.2   Non Asbestos-Containing Materials

No Asbestos was detected in samples collected of plaster ceilings and walls, wall papers, bat
insulation, exterior window caulking and glazing, and exterior door caulking and glazing, and
electrical wire insulation.

2.4 Applicable Regulations

EPA / NESHAP Regulations for Asbestos Containing Materials

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency promulgated the National Emission Standards for
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) [40 CFR Part 61], which addresses the application, removal, and
disposal of asbestos-containing materials (ACM). Under NESHAP the following categories are
defined for asbestos-containing materials:

        Friable - When dry, can be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by hand pressure.

        Non-friable - When dry, cannot be crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder by hand
        pressure.

        Category I Non-friable ACM - Packings, gaskets, resilient floor coverings, and asphalt roofing
        products containing more than 1% asbestos.

        Category II Non-friable ACM – Any material, excluding Category I Non-friable ACM, containing

Under NESHAP, the following actions are required:

1. Prior to the commencement of demolition or renovation activities, the building owner must inspect
   the affected facility or part of the facility where the demolition or renovation activities will occur for
   the presence of asbestos.

2. Remove all RACM from the facility before any activity begins that would break up, dislodge, or
   similarly disturb the material or preclude access for subsequent removal.

3. RACM need not be removed if:

    a) It is Category I non-friable ACM that is not in poor condition.
    b) It is on a facility component that is encased in concrete or other similar material and is
       adequately wet whenever exposed.
    c) It was not accessible for testing and was therefore not discovered until after demolition began
       and because of the demolition the material cannot be safely removed.
    d) It is Category II non-friable ACM and the probability is low that the material will become
       crumbled, pulverized, or reduced to powder during demolition.

2.5 Abatement Recommendations

For this project F&R recommends abatement of the following materials/scope of work.

 All asbestos-containing thermal systems insulation pipes, pipe wrap, mudded and mastic elbows,
fittings etc. that will be impacted during the renovation located inside the cellar(basement) and
underneath wood floors. Approx. 250 linear feet of this material. (The Abatement Contractor shall
remove these materials within a negative pressure containment as described in Part 3 – Execution
of this document.) – Note: It is anticipated that in some areas some of the insulation are damaged
and have fallen off of pipes. Where this has occurred the contractor will be responsible for
decontaminating all of these areas.

 All asbestos-containing soil located or in contact with asbestos-containing thermal systems
insulation pipes, pipe wrap, mudded and mastic elbows, fittings etc. (localized in various areas
underneath the floor and cellar(basement) totaling approx. 600 square feet) shall be cleaned up by
the Abatement Contractor. The Abatement Contractor shall assume removal of approximately 2
inches of soil 2 feet on either side of pipe runs in Rooms 100, 101a, 102, 103, 104, followed by
HEPA vacuuming the area. The contractor shall also remove any debris in this area as
contaminated waste. The contractor shall also remove any debris in the crawlspace (bricks
woods, etc) as contaminated waste.

 All asbestos-containing bare soil located along the perimeter wall of the cellar(basement)
underneath Room 101 (approximately 12” from all of the perimeter walls in this room) shall be
cleaned up by the Abatement Contractor. (approximate area of soil removal – 80 sq. ft.). The
Abatement Contractor shall HEPA vacuum the area and assume cover of the soil with at least 4
inches of gravel (same as currently present). The contractor shall also remove any debris in the
cellar(basement) (bricks woods, etc) as contaminated waste. Contractor shall remove under
negative pressure containment.

All asbestos-containing bare soil (2” deep) located in the trench in Room 104 where previous pipe
was located (approximately 50 sq. ft.) The contractor shall also remove any debris in the
cellar(basement) (bricks woods, etc) as contaminated waste. Contractor shall remove under
negative pressure containment.

 All asbestos-containing furnace lining and gaskets (approximately 25 sq. ft.). Contractor shall be
responsible for decontamination of the furnace. Contractor shall remove under negative pressure
containment.

 All asbestos containing flooring materials in Room 207. Approx. 150 square feet of flooring
materials. NOTE: The Abatement Contractor shall assume all flooring contains multiple layers.
Note 2: The Abatement Contractor shall be responsible for removal of all VAT, sheeting and mastic
under partition walls, fixtures, cabinets, and other furnishings and obstructions.

3.0     PCB-Containing Light Ballasts

3.1     Methodology

Light ballasts are the electrical components attached to fluorescent light fixtures usually found
under a metal overplate. Prior to 1978, ballasts were commonly manufactured with polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs). PCBs were used in fluorescent light ballasts because of their good electrical
insulating capabilities. Ballasts made after 1978 are usually marked "Non-PCB."

3.2     Results

F&R estimates that there are approximately four (4) light ballasts in the building.

3.3     Findings and Recommendations

The disposal of fluorescent light ballasts should be based upon the presence or lack thereof of
PCBs and the condition of the ballasts (leaking, etc.). The best option for non-leaking PCB ballasts
is to recycle them at an approved recycling facility. Non-leaking PCB ballasts that aren't recycled
must be managed and disposed of as hazardous waste. Leaking PCB ballasts should be handled
with extreme caution to avoid exposure, contamination and liability. All applicable local, state and
federal regulations should be followed.

4.0     Mercury-Containing Components

4.1     Methodology

Mercury is used in several building components including fluorescent lamps, mercury vapor lamps,
mercury switches, and wall thermostats. In fluorescent lighting, mercury-containing dust forms from
the mercury vapor found within the lamps.

Frederick, Virginia                                                                    Revised March 4, 2009
4.2     Results

During this survey, F&R personnel observed approximately eight (8) fluorescent lamps and
approximately two (2) wall and mechanical thermostats in the building.

4.3     Findings and Recommendations

F&R recommends that all fluorescent lamps, mercury vapor lights, mercury switches, and all wall and
mechanical thermostats, and radioactive materials be properly disposed of during renovation. These
materials should be removed and disposed of/recycled according to regulatory guidelines by an
appropriately licensed/certified contractor. Mercury and radioactive containing waste is considered a
hazardous waste material in the State of Virginia.

5.0     Mold/Animal Droppings-Excrement

5.1     Methodology

F&R was requested to observe suspect mold found in Room 102. In addition F&R was also asked to
comment on the presence of animal droppings/excrement found in the structure.

5.2     Results

During this limited survey, F&R visually observed mold present on the walls in Room 102. F&R also
observed evidence of rodent droppings in the structure and habitation of birds in the attic.

5.3     Findings and Recommendations

F&R recommends that visible mold be cleaned from the walls in Room 102. All moisture intrusion
sources which created the mold should be corrected and the area properly dried before remediation.
F&R recommends that all remediation activities be performed by a qualified remediation contractor
and that all remediation activities should be performed in general accordance with the guidelines
described in EPA’s March 2001 document “Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial
Buildings”. Where animal excrement/droppings are present, all personnel cleaning these areas
should wear proper PPE (personal protective equipment) and this material be properly cleaned
up. For this work, the general contractor should consult with a Certified Industrial Hygienist or the
Contractors safety officer (if qualified) to develop a work plan for clean-up abatement of these
items including mold.

our site visit, and upon current industry standards. During F&R’s non-invasive inspection, accessible
areas were visually surveyed for the presence of suspect asbestos materials. Areas inspected for the
above-referenced materials were limited to those designated by the Client.
During this study, suspect asbestos samples were submitted for analysis at an NVLAP-accredited
laboratory via polarized light microscopy. As with any similar survey of this nature, actual
conditions exist only at the precise locations from which suspect asbestos samples were collected.
Certain inferences are based on the results of this sampling and related testing to form a
professional opinion of conditions in areas beyond those from which the samples were collected. It
is also understood that this is a non-invasive survey so that it is possible that concealed materials
may be present that were not accessible during the original survey. No other warranty, expressed
or implied, is made.
Under this scope of services, F&R assumes no responsibility regarding response actions (e.g.
O&M Plans, Encapsulation, Abatement, Removal, etc.) initiated as a result of these findings. F&R
assumes no liability for the duties and responsibilities of the Client with respect to compliance with
these regulations. Compliance with regulations and response actions are the sole responsibility of
the Client and should be conducted in accordance with local, state, and/or federal requirements
