The subject site is comprised of a 0.69-acre parcel containing one 2,752 sq. ft. single-story building constructed in 1918. The subject site is owned by Mineral County School District (MCSD) and was operated as the MCSD Administration Building until 2010; the building was also used as a high school and Western Nevada Community College Hawthorne Centre for periods during its history.
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was conducted in October 2016. Based on the findings of the Phase I ESA, additional environmental investigation was recommended to identify potential asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and mold growth in the building. Additional investigation was also warranted for identifying any release of petroleum hydrocarbons into the soil on the subject site and potential for vapor migration into the building. Environmental reports are available upon request.
