WISCONSIN: NEW SCHOOL CLOSES BECAUSE OF MOLD

The November 28 Wisconsin State Journal reported that Chavez Elementary School in Madison, Wis., will be closed until after winter break to give crews a chance to remove all mold from the building. The school closing followed investigation that was prompted by parents and teachers who were concerned about nagging health problems that many suspected were caused by the school's air quality. Investigators believe the mold came from condensation that developed on ductwork when the cooling system was turned on. Investigators also believe that if the ductwork had been insulated the mold problem would have never occurred. One teacher said she approached a representative from Westra Construction, the company that built the school, earlier this year and asked about the possibility of mold contamination. Her question was brushed off, she said. "He said, 'Why would there be mold? It's a new building.'"
