Two correctional facilities in Kansas will be undergoing asbestos removal in multiple buildings after the toxic material was found during a recent audit.
The $170,000 asbestos assessment was done on pipe insulation, ceiling material and multiple other items that were likely to contain asbestos. Now, another $75,000 has been allotted to remove the asbestos from the pipe wrapping and ceiling tiles.
The Kansas Department of Corrections has ordered the removal, but has said that some places that may have asbestos are not needed for immediate removal. Some think that a plan should be made to rid all correctional facilities of asbestos.
