Asbestos removal is set to begin at the Northampton County Courthouse after the county found asbestos at this location and 11 other areas throughout the county.
The Environmental Protection Agency was notified of the asbestos at the Northampton County Courthouse law library and the removal process began this week.
Officials have stated that workers will be removing asbestos and that this will take between four and six weeks because it will have to be removed from all of the material inside of the library.
This has been the second time that asbestos has been removed from this area of the courthouse, but allegedly courthouse officials do not know how the carcinogenic ended up back in the library. Other buildings in the county have already undergone asbestos removal and are reopening at this time.
