North Stonington Public Schools

PCB Information

Buildings constructed prior to 1979 may contain building materials (caulking, tile/carpet mastic, and fluorescent light ballasts) made with Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs). Long-term public health impacts are not yet well documented or understood. The North Stonington Public School District has and will continue to follow all health and safety protocols established by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) as well as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Any projects on our buildings performed by District staff or subcontractors will also be accountable for following DEEP/EPA health and safety protocols. The health and safety of our students and staff is our utmost concern.

We are providing this page on the District website in the interest of both providing the public with researchable resources as well as offering the latest District-related information in regards to North Stonington Public Schools’ PCB situation. We will update this page as information becomes available, therefore we recommend checking back periodically for updates.
