Florida building could pose a health threat to top law enforcement agents and other employees
Water leaks and wet insides have plagued Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Tampa headquarters for years. Now half a dozen employees are wearing protective masks to work.
Air samples from the building show high levels of mold spores in both the upper and lower floors. Testers also found high levels of one of the most toxic and destructive forms of mold growing on the wall and inside a cabinet in the biology lab where DNA testing is carried out.
The report came in more than three weeks ago yet there is no date set for remediation. As per state policy, the scope of work must go through a bidding process.
The FDLE says only one person has reported getting sick. All employees have been told about the air quality report and been given the opportunity to ask questions.
