No mold found at New Richmond High

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health did not find any evidence of active water leaks or evidence of mold in the choral room or adjacent band room at New Richmond High School during an inspection March 22.

The inspection was requested by New Richmond superintendent of schools Tom Durbin after several students became ill during a Troubadours class in Room 108 Feb. 8 leading to an evacuation of the school while firemen, air quality experts and Duke Energy investigated possible environmental causes.

No problems were found, but, as a precaution, Durbin closed the room and asked NIOSH to conduct a field investigation of the room.
