AMES, IA — Mold found growing in Fellows Elementary School''s tunnels and classrooms won''t be around for long, according to the Ames Tribune.
The mold was discovered by Gerry Peters, Ames Community School District director of facilities planning and management, and immediate action was taken to eradicate it, the article stated.
According to the article, the Fellows site has groundwater drainage issues that contribute to an environment where mold thrives.
"Some stoop slabs have settled over time, and they now slope toward the building so that moisture flows into the building and accumulates in the basement tunnels," said Peters.
Peters is taking bids on a complete mold abatement project that involves cleaning liners and ductwork in the tunnels, the article noted.
