Inspection finds hospital demolition contractor in compliance with regulations

January 17, 2012

A Hagerstown inspector who visited the Washington County Hospital demolition project Tuesday found the contractor to be in compliance with all requirements, according to a city official.

In addition, the Maryland Department of the Environment told the city it would also inspect the site and inform officials of any violations, city spokeswoman Erin Wolfe said.

MDE had not contacted the city as of Tuesday afternoon, Wolfe said.

The inspections were scheduled after a neighbor complained Friday that the demolition was spreading thick dust throughout the area around the construction site.

On Friday afternoon, the city asked the contractor to stop work for the day because the windy weather was spreading demolition dust, Wolfe has said.
