Occupant Notification: Asbestos Abatement Project
Posted: 15 JUNE 2015
On or around 17 JULY 2015, an asbestos abatement project will occur on the Second Floor of Dahlgren Memorial Library.
The project will involve removal of floor tiles containing asbestos material; Phase I will be completed in @ 30 days; Phase II will be completed sometime before 30 JUNE 2016.
The District of Columbia, the Occupational, Safety & Health Administration and Environmental Protection Agency regulations concerning this type of activity will be followed to protect the health and possessions of the building occupants.
A professional contractor licensed in the District of Columbia is performing the asbestos abatement. The work will be performed within an enclosed area, meeting requirements as specified by applicable District of Columbia and Federal regulations.
Georgetown University has retained the services of an industrial hygiene contractor to monitor the activities of the asbestos abatement contractor and to collect and have analyzed air samples during and after asbestos abatement for quality control and final air clearance.
Following removal operations, the work area(s) will be cleaned using the procedures as outlined in the District of Columbia and Federal regulations. After the re-occupancy criteria, as established by District of Columbia have been met, the work area will be reopened only to personnel associated with the renovation.
If you have any questions regarding this project contact Brandon Hudson, DML Facilities Coordinator at 7-1187 or Chungan Lin, Safety & Environmental Management at 7-7172.

UIS has contracted with a work team for a mandated upgrade of network cabling in DML. This will mean “rolling network outages” affecting the wired data jacks in the building.
Accordingly, networked PC’s, printers, and copiers – any device connected to a networked jack – will be unavailable for @ two hours sometime during the period 7:30 am – 5:00 pm Tuesday 02 June through Friday 05 June.
It is possible that the project will extend Monday 08 June through Friday 12 June if necessary.
Wireless service will be fully operational during the rolling outage.
We have no reliable way of predicting which devices will be impacted when, but they believe that when a network connection is being upgraded, you’ll lose use of it for 2 hours.
We apologize for any inconveniences and please contact DML Reference with any questions.
