LegalView Reports Cancer Risk for St. Louis Residents After Unapproved Asbestos Removal During Demolition

LegalView recently informed mesothelioma blog readers of improper removal of asbestos in St. Louis that may have left thousands of residents at risk for developing mesothelioma cancer. The city used an unapproved "wet method" of removing asbestos fibers, which may expose residents to the asbestos dust once the water evaporates.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 29, 2008 --, the most comprehensive resource for everything legal on the Web, recently reported the use of an unapproved method of asbestos removal by the city of St. Louis potentially exposing thousands of residents to asbestos fibers during the demolition of buildings. The city has been paving the way for a new international airport since 2000, and has been using a wet method of asbestos removal during construction, in which asbestos is hosed down with water. However, the method has apparently not been 100 percent approved by the EPA. According to a St. Louis Post-Dispatch news article, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was unaware of the use of the "wet method" by the city of St. Louis.

Asbestos, which is derived from a mineral known as vermiculite, was used in the construction industry as part of the insulation implemented into homes, apartments, government buildings, offices, hospitals, elementary schools and universities. Millions of these structures still contain deadly asbestos fibers and the EPA has developed regulated and approved methods as to how to properly get rid of asbestos so individuals do not continue to be exposed to, and at risk for developing mesothelioma. Those who feel they may be at risk for mesothelioma cancer should not only contact a medical professional, but should also consider consulting a [mesothelioma attorney __title__ Mesothelioma Attorneys] as well.
