DOES anyone know if the new EPA lead law covers demolition on kitchens and bathrooms?

depends. how old is the house for starters. if pre 1978 then more than likely yes but a lead test will have to be done.

That's right, if it's pre 78 that's a big YES!

What the hell are you listening to a freakin building inspector for.

It does pertain to demo. And you are a fool if you listen to him - he has no jurisidiction over EPA RRP practices.

First part is correct on age

Lead Test part is not mandatory & up to the Homeowner (now if tested & it is below the EPA's de menimis levels - your off the hook)

Also as a reminder, once you do any "demolition" you can throw that 6/20 exemption out unless it was tested & deemed that you are off the hook

Re: Bathroom Remodeling Epa


1978 and older homes, ANY work that disturbs more than 6 square feet of interior surface is subject to the RRP regulations, UNLESS the lead testing is negative.

I've experienced this too, on a different subject. Building Inspectors don't always know what is going on. I called for some extra info once and ending up educating the inspector.
