• The Terramar Task Force has been working diligently since October 2014 addressing facility concerns related to the water intrusion at the Terramar campus. 
     
    Indoor air quality testing was performed several times during this period in various locations and at different times of the day without finding any unacceptable results.  Since the indoor test results were favorable, that testing has been suspended until a need is warranted for it to happen again.
     
    The exterior of the classroom building was sealed in December.  Due to the length of time involved in the process we are using, the exterior of the Administration and Multi-Purpose Building will be sealed this summer as there just was not enough time to complete these buildings during the school year.  This has helped as we have not seen the same affects on the classroom building during rain events that occurred after it was sealed.
     
    We have also been testing various ways to address the high moisture readings we are experiencing on the first floor of the classroom building.  We have conducted multiple test in two vacated classrooms.  After reviewing the results of these tests, it has been determined to use a rubber-backed carpet product that is manufactured on a large roll, unlike the current carpet tiles, to replace the entire first floor carpeting.  This product is specially designed for high moisture installations.  In addition, to provide some relief in each classroom we will remove the vinyl tile in the classrooms then polish and seal the concrete in a small area in front of the sink in each classroom.  This work will be performed this summer.
     
    We have also had a mechanical engineer review the air conditioning systems at the campus.  One of the things the mechanical engineer determined is that the units in the classrooms were oversized, not allowing the units to run long enough to help pull humidity out of these spaces.  This summer we will replace the air conditioning units on the campus and resize the units to better address the interior humidity levels with smaller, high-efficiency units.
     
    We will continue to monitor the impact of these changes to ensure the facility performs as expected.
