Lead Abatement at U.S. Coast Guard Facility

Lead Abatement at U.S. Coast Guard Facility


The United States Coast Guard Air Station San Diego was commissioned in 1937. It is now known as Coast Guard Activities San Diego, and is home to helicopters, small boats, cutters, and more. During an extensive renovation of its hanger, it was determined the entire interior was painted with lead-based paints. The massive interior wooden structure needed to undergo lead paint abatement and paint stabilization. Watkins’ team was called in for the task. Special precautions were required due to the close proximity to water and gusts of wind. The project was successfully completed under schedule, while allowing Coast Guard operations to continue with no disruption.
