Barge Maintenance Involves Lead Paint Removal

The Recovery Site will be doing maintenance work on a barge tomorrow. The barge is docked at the South boat ramp near the plant discharge channel. Part of the work includes scraping some lead paint off one side of the barge in order to weld handrails onto it. This work will be done in accordance with requirements for lead-based paint which includes capturing the paint chips and use of appropriate clothing worn by the workers (could see Tyvek suits).

I just want you to know what you might see is typical of what is done when dealing with lead-based paint (such as you might see when a highway bridge is being re-painted).
