A thorough asbestos inspection (survey) is required prior to demolition or renovation activities at a facility. A State licensed asbestos consultant must perform the survey. If asbestos is identified in the survey, and it is predicted that asbestos will be disturbed in any way, a State licensed asbestos contractor must remove it first. Additionally, a notification must be sent through the Pinellas County Citizen Access Portal or a written notification must be mailed or delivered to the Pinellas County Air Quality Division ten (10) working days prior to facility load supporting members either being moved or removed (demolitions) and prior to asbestos removal projects.
