Answer: No. Although EPA encourages your firm to continue to use this method of supplemental containment, the minimum requirements of the RRP rule must still be met. Specifically, the floor surface must be covered with taped down plastic sheeting or other impermeable material six feet the perimeter of the work surface, or a distance sufficient to contain the dust, whichever is greater. Alternatively, your firm can install vertical containment measures as described more fully in frequent question 23002-23786.
