Moisture control
Native American reservations
Abstract:An investigation of mold and moisture conditions was originally conducted on November 3-6, 2002, by Kate Brown of the Building Research Council at the University of Illinois and Paul Knight of Domus Plus. A report detailing finding and recommendations from that site visit was prepared in December 2002. The Executive Director of the Lac du Flambeau Chippewa Housing Authority (LDFCHA) and Environmental Health Officer at Indian Health Services requested a follow-up visit to further assess the mold and moisture conditions in their housing units. On September 8-10,2004, Paul Knight and Robert Nemeth of Magna Systems, Inc. conducted a follow-up site visit to assess mold and moisture conditions. Technical assistance was provided by the Building Research Council. Eighteen existing homes and two homes under construction were investigated. The investigators divided into two teams given the number of homes pre-selected by the LDFCHA. A member of the LDFCHA staff escorted each inspection team. This is a summary report of activities and issues identified while on site. A detailed analysis of the findings and recommendations is found in the attached report, titled: Technical Housing Assessment Report: Examining Mold and Moisture Conditions of HUD Homes on the Lac du Flambeau Reservation.
