Foothill-De Anza Community College District Hazardous Materials Program Review and Future Direction.
Foothill-De Anza Community Coll. District, Los Altos Hills, CA.
This document provides a historical perspective on the Foothill-De Anza Community College District Hazardous Materials Program. Prior to the 1990's, the State College and Community College system were basically exempted from nearly all local regulatory compliance efforts. State enforcement of environmental regulations at the community college level was minimal, and largely voluntary, on an oversight basis. In 1990, the conditions found locally were representative of the Community College System as a whole. The first Five Year Environmental Plan was drafted in 1990. This plan laid out a vision of the future which could potentially turn the rising tide of environmental concern and chemophobia into a vital and aware adjunct of the dual campus district. The plan laid out the environmental needs of the district, providing a blueprint of what modifications would be necessary to bring its operations up to code and conforming with regulatory requirements, along with projected costs to implement the program, and an aggressive schedule of accomplishments. The climate of environmental change has continued to foster more regulation. The report outlines a list of items to be accomplished in the future. (VWC)
