Environmental testing to begin at historic Claflin school

The Friends of Historic Claflin, Inc. began working with Geotechnical & Environmental Consultants Inc. to test the historic Claflin school building in Columbus for environmental hazards. Richard Jessie,executive director of restoration at Friends of Historic Claflin Inc., said the company has been retained for phase one and phase two testing to identify hazards like lead paint, asbestos, mildew and mold. He said these issues must be identified and dealt with prior to the group cleaning up and doing demolition work on the building. Jessie also on Tuesday began further securing different points of entry at Claflin that the homeless were using to illegally enter the building.
