Asbestos in soil poses a significant liability and health risk

Many properties have soil contaminated with asbestos due to demolition contractors in the past not utilizing appropriate asbestos abatement procedures and/or through historically substandard practices by manufacturers and construction trades. There are a number of ways that properties became contaminated with asbestos. Below are just a few examples:

  • Manufacturers dumping tailings and/or asbestos bi-product and waste on their property
  • Lack of and/or inadequate procedures employed during demolition of buildings/facilities
  • Demolition debris containing asbestos buried on properties
  • Mismanaged fire debris cleanup
  • Crushing of underground asbestos cement pipe during excavation
  • Illegal dumping
  • Asbestos landfills at often unmarked and unapproved locations
  • Historical waste from installation of asbestos siding, roofing, asbestos containing mechanical insulation, asbestos fire and acoustic spray, etc.
