II. Narrative Section 
Project Justification (Essay)
Project Description: The floor of the museum has noticeable cracks and the project entails assessing and repairing of cracking floor if necessary and the removal of asbestos-containing glue and floor tiles from public exhibit spaces in the Lost City Museum. Also involved will be proper storage of collections during the project and replacement of museum appropriate flooring.
Project Justification: The floor cracking may be due to a structural issue. It is unknown if settling has occurred from a visual inspection. It is a concern that some of the cracking is new and several existing cracks are continuing to move. Asbestos is a known health hazard, listed as carcinogenic. As floor tiles are worn down by heavy traffic, asbestos particles become airborne and are inhaled. Such material puts the visiting public and museum staff at risk. It places a liability on the state.
Project Background Information: In 1988, University Associates, LTD conducted an asbestos survey of the Lost City Museum in Overton for the State of Nevada. During that survey, asbestos was noted in several places. The agency became aware of the report while preparing CIP’s for the FY03-04 biennium and a request was submitted for removal at that time. Due to funding shortfalls, the asbestos material was removed from only the museum residence which contained the highest levels of asbestos and was in the worst condition. Application for removal was made for the FY05-06 biennium and again for the 06-07 but was not funded. The asbestos-containing areas in the museum, where the public is exposed, remain. The cracking in the floor is being reported on the CIP report FY11-12 biennium we are requesting a structural analysis to be done for the possible problem. The flooring in question is 38 years old in one gallery and 30 years old in the other.
Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
Type of equipment to be replaced:
Year existing equipment was installed:
Manufacturer of existing equipment:
Model of existing equipment:
Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
Will this project require any hazardous material abatement? Yes
Ramifications if the Project is not Approved
(Short Essay): If this project is not approved, the public and Nevada State employees will continue to be subjected to a health hazard in the form of airborne asbestos particles. As more time goes by, the situation becomes more critical. Exposing the public and employees to health hazards can be a liability to the State of Nevada. The cracking in the floor if not addressed may cause future damage. The cost to the State of Nevada may increase as damage worsens.
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): A Nevada State Public Works Board survey, completed by the University Associates, LTD. Stated that asbestos is a known health hazard when airborne particles are inhaled. Wear on floor tiles from high visitor traffic can contribute to the disturbance of the particles and place the public and Nevada State employees at risk. Concern of cracking in cement may be a structural issue.
