Lead-based Paint Clearance:

Clearance is an examination conducted to ensure the site and unit are safe for occupancy. The examination includes a visual assessment and dust wipe testing. Clearance examinations must be performed by persons who have EPA or state-approved training and are licensed or certified to perform clearance examinations. The clearance examiner will provide the owner with a clearance certificate once the site and unit are tested and identified as safe to occupy.

            1.       The public health department is notified and they will complete a risk assessment within                       fifteen (15) days.

            2.       The owner will notify the tenants of the results from the risk assessment within fifteen (15)                       days of receiving the report.

            3.       As identified by the risk assessment the owner will complete lead-base paint hazard                       reduction activities within 30 days. The owner must notify the tenants within fifteen days of                       the completion of the hazard reduction activities.

            4.       LHA will consider the owner has complied with the lead reduction activities as prescribed by                       the risk assessor when the public health department certifies the hazard reduction is                       complete and a certificate of clearance is provided to LHA.
