Lead in Paint - New Certification Rules
Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. 

If you are a homeowner performing renovation, repair, or painting work in your own home, EPA's RRP rule does not cover your project. However, you have the ultimate responsibility for the safety of your family or children in your care. If you are living in a pre-1978 home and planning to do painting or repairs, please read a copy of EPA's Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care Providers, and Schools (PDF) lead hazard information pamphlet (10 pp, 7.0MB). | en español (PDF) (11 pp, 2.4MB). You may also want to call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (5323) and ask for more information on how to work safely in a home with lead-based paint.

EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.

  • Contractors must use lead-safe work practices and follow these three simple procedures:
    • Contain the work area.
    • Minimize dust.
    • Clean up thoroughly. 

How Do I Find the Property Lines?
Permanent corner iron monuments should be located below the sod level, in the ground of each legally divided parcel of land in Corcoran. Locating the corner iron monuments is the responsibility of the property owner. The corner iron monument can be found by using a certificate of survey and a metal detector, or contact a registered land surveyor to locate and expose the monuments or replace any missing pins. A list is also available at City Hall for benchmarks.
 
Are Lot Surveys Available?
The City has some lot surveys in the property address files available for homes built after 2000. Prior to this date you may come to City Hall and review the property file.
