Derelict Housing Structures
The derelict (abandoned) structures include residential and commercial buildings on the Colville Indian Reservation. Hazardous building material inspections were conducted as a pre-demolition requirement. These materials include the presence of asbestos, lead based paint, lighting, and electrical components. Sampling components include wood, glass, concrete, metal, fiberglass insulation, flooring, roofing, piping, railings, plumbing, and ducting. The inspections were designed to assist with special handling or waste characterization prior to disposal as a result of modernization and demolition activities.
