NOTE: Currently there is no certification program for firms conducting PCBs surveys or abatement. A list of Consultants and Contractors self-determined to be qualified to conduct a pre-deconstruction PCBs building survey and PCBs abatement is provided by local professional organizations. The City of Palo Alto does not recommend or certify these firms. Click here for more info.
Follow Applicable federal and state laws if PCBs are determined to exist in Priority Building Materials: This may include reporting to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board, and the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC). These agencies may require additional sampling and abatement of PCBs.
