HAVRE, Mont. — On February 16, the General Services Administration (GSA) conducted standard spot air quality testing in the Havre Sector Headquarters building. Initial test results indicated the presence of lead in a small portion of the building. GSA notified sector staff of their findings on March 1 and requested further testing.
The staff were temporarily relocated to the Havre Border Patrol Station as a general precaution. “This temporary relocation is part of our contingency planning and did not disrupt any operations or administrative services,” explained Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Sean L. McGoffin. Follow-up testing is being conducted and test results are pending.
