Hello neighbors,

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has implemented a new rule which is called the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. The RRP rule will affect property managers and others who may have to disturb known lead based paint during a renovation.

In addition, the new rule will apply to any and all renovations completed on residential houses, apartment buildings, child occupied facilities, schools, or day care centers built prior to 1978.

As of April 22, 2010, any renovation jobs in progress will be affected by the RRP rule and will require training, certification, and work place requirements.
