What if a contractor is working in my area and its creating dust, chemical odors or excessive noise?

Construction and renovation work in an occupied area can be disruptive and some degree of inconveniece is to be expected. However, the contractor is responsible for taking all reasonable precautions necessary to control such "fugitive emissions." This may include, but is not limited to, containment systems for asbestos, lead or nuisance dust or ventilation and air monitoring for certian chemicals used. Contact EHSS at 231-2341 to report situations of concern.
